Do you think a woman who had a miscarriage still should be wished a happy mother's day? Do the answers vary between men and women on this subject? (Maybe ask your significant other to answer as well please.)

I think they should get a happy mother's day. They still held a child in their womb.

As much as I sympathize with such a loss, no, it would demean the wonderful women who are doing the work of raising children.

I didn't have an opinion, Yin, so I did a little research
and then a bit of contemplation.

My personal opinion at present is

Given the reality of surrogacy, it is not implantation and
growth of an embryo in a uterus that makes a woman mother; it is the
relationship that exists between the mother and the child after birth that
begins the existential relationship.
(And I think Don Barzini hinted at that in his answer.)

The holiday was started by daughters

Suffragist and writer Julia Ward Howe first suggested the idea of Mother's Day in the United States in 1872. Howe was a pacifist and saw the holiday as a chance to unite women and rally for peace. For several years, she held an annual Mother's Day meeting in Boston.

West Virginia activist Anna Jarvis is credited with creating the holiday that is celebrated today.

In 1908, Jarvis campaigned for a national observance of the holiday in honor of her mother, who was a community health advocate. Her mom had organized several Mother's Day Work Clubs that addressed child rearing and public health issues, and Jarvis wanted to commemorate her and the work of all mothers.

However, Jarvis later became disillusioned by how floral and greeting card companies commercialized the holiday and said she regretted starting it.

It became an official US holiday in 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the second Sunday in May as a day of "public expression of our love and reverence for the mothers of our country."

Exactly. Mother’s Day is a celebration of the love we have for our mothers, and mothers everywhere.
