Welcome to the Bread and Roses Project

This is a community of conversation, connection and support for breadwinning moms and caregiving dads.Here, you will likely see yourself or your partner reflected in the stories of others.

You will also hear the voices of people in similar situations to you – but who are dealing with it in a completely different way.

If you are the reluctant breadwinning mother who is struggling and looking for answers, this site is for you.

If you are the mom who proudly supports her family and feel you have something to offer other moms (and dads), this site is for you.

If you are the dad who is struggling to adjust to a new role as a stay-at-home dad or as the partner of a hard working breadwinning mom, this site is for you.

If you are the dad who loves being the main caregiver and feel you have something to offer to other dads (and moms), this site is for you.

If you are part of a new generation of breadwinning moms and caregiving dads, this site is for you.
