Fridays on Motherhood: Meet Lan

Today we bring the third installment of our Fridays on Motherhood series as we share with you stories from the International Museum of Women’s newest exhibition MAMA: Motherhood Around the Globe. This online exhibition of global art, voices and ideas seek to inspire and connect women on issues that matter to mothers around the world. Each Friday we share a story of a particular woman that inspired us from the MAMA exhibit.

Today we invite you to meet Lan, a 30-year-old police officer. Says IMOW: “She was born in Nanjing, in the Jiangsu province, China. She still lives in Nanjing. She was married in 2006, and is the recent mother of 4-month-old twins, a girl and a boy.  Although most couples are subject to the one child policy in China, twins are an exception to this rule, and they are especially lucky in Asian culture.”
