Congrats to Gwen-she is included on Working Mother Magazine’s list of the 50 Most Powerful Moms of 2013! It’s truly admirable and inspiring how Gwen is able to balance her ultra-busy music and fashion careers with her duties as a Mom. 🙂
These 50 American moms hold real power—in fact, they generate it on a daily basis through their talent, influence, status, money and intellectual capital. But even more so, each of these women have exhibited the strength to overcome tremendous obstacles, the insight to innovate and inspire, and the passion and courage to go against the grain to change the lives of others for the better. Working Mother’s 50 Most Powerful Moms of 2013 (each of whom have at least one child under age 18) measure up in these ways and so many more.
Singer, Fashion Designer
Children: Kingston, 6, Zuma, 4
This powerful 43-year-old working mom from the suburbs of Southern California became front woman of No Doubt, a highly successful solo artist and an accomplished fashion designer—but always finds time to take her sons to the park. Her edgy-yet-wearable label, L.A.M.B, drew accolades from fashion critics; and its offshoot labels, Harajuku Lovers and Harajuku Mini, are selling well at Target. Like the rest of us, Gwen sometimes finds it challenging to reconcile her work-self and mom-self. Last year she told Vogue, “I am a mother. And if you don’t do it right, there are serious consequences.”
