Alena says she is doing what she was meant to do

It has been decades since women have been battling to evolve the stereotype of being just wives and mothers.

But this woman feels that it’s exactly what she was born to be.

In an interview with BBC, she said;

“The culture (in the 1990s) was anything but what I enjoyed, and it definitely made me feel like an outsider.”

“It was all kind of, let’s fight the boys and go out and be independent and break glass ceilings.”

“But I just felt like I was born to be a mother and a wife. What I really related to were the old shows of the 1950s and 60s.”

The young mother is also a part of the newfound culture knows as 'Tradwives'

'The Darling Academy' trains women interested in the old-fashioned ways of living, including ‘traditional English manners, lifestyle, and values.’

Not only that, but Alena is also a part of the newfound culture knows as ‘Tradwives.’

'Tradwives' is a group of women who choose to live upholding traditional values and responsibilities, for both male and female.

Alena says feminism is about choices

Many think that the 'Tradwives' trend is a huge step back for women, but Alena says feminism is about choices.

“To say you can go into the working world and compete with men… to me is taking a choice away.”

Alena has faced quite a backlash for following this trend. She believes shaming people for ‘traditional’ lifestyles is counter-intuitive because that is ‘not progressive.’

The mother said;

“It’s empowering to say I don’t want part of the modern narrative that says you’re less than if you stay home.”

“We’ve incredibly undervalued. Think about it, did you not want your mum there? Did you not want your traditional wholesome supportive, loving environment to be brought up in.”

She also said;

“I’m not saying that anything other than that isn’t. But it’s the model way, and it’s beautiful to be able to live it.”

“Don’t make us feel like we’re not worthy of staying at home. We’re raising the next generation of people who will be making policies that affect your future. It’s an incredible, worthwhile job.”
