Emily Blunt critical of 'mummy cult' that pressures women

By Eleanor Bley Griffiths

Emily Blunt has spoken out against the social pressure on women around motherhood that she believes leads to cruelty.

In The Girl On The Train, Blunt stars as divorcee and alcoholic Rachel Watson, who has been through failed fertility treatment.

Speaking at the London world premiere, Blunt described the pressure as a "sort of mummy cult". She said: "I think it sort of makes women feel that they have to be a bit defensive about the choices that they make, whether they want to be a mother, whether they don't, whether they want to breastfeed, whether they don't."
