MOMbo was a 501(c)(3)
organization which existed from 1990 to 2007. This website is an online archive of MOMbo writings and audio.
MOMbo’s mission was: “to broadcast the everyday truth about motherhood (in order to save the world).” This mission statement was meant to be bold and idealistic. Mothers really are at the root of our world. By nurturing our offspring, we are continuing the species. MOMbo sought to enliven the discussion of what motherhood is by looking at the history of motherhood in our world, by reporting on diverse projects, insights and lifestyles of moms in our country, and by offering a website and radio companion that brought the everyday stories of motherhood into the public ear.
