Actress Kim Cattrall took issue with the term “childless” this week, explaining that there’s more than one way to be a mother.

The Sex and the City star, who does not have children, told BBC Radio, “I am a parent. I have young actors and actresses that I mentor. I have nieces and nephews that I am very close to.”

She questioned the terms “childless” and “child-free,” explaining that “there is a way to become a mother in this day and age that doesn't include your name on the child's birth certificate."

The 59-year-old actress said that the term childless makes women sound like they’re lesser people because they haven’t had a child.

"There are many different ways to be a mum in the world,” she said.
