Riassunto: Essays explore a wide range of contemporary feminist mothering practices.
Dal retro di copertina:
Feminist Mothering goes beyond critiques of patriarchal motherhood to locate and investigate feminist maternal practices as sites for women's empowerment and social change. The contributors see "feminist mothering" as practices of mothering that seek to challenge and change the norms of patriarchal motherhood that are limiting and oppressive to women. For many women, practicing feminist mothering offers a way to disrupt the transmission of sexist and patriarchal values from generation to generation. Contributors explore the ways in which women integrate activism, paid employment, nonsexist childrearing practices, and non-child-centered interests in their lives--and other caregivers into their childrens' lives--in order to challenge existing societal inequality and create new egalitarian possibilities for women, men, and families.
"Andrea O'Reilly has assembled a collection of essays that explores the challenges of twenty-first-century motherhood in relation to the legacies of Second Wave feminism. With intelligence and passion, its contributors offer a variety of nuanced perspectives on women's efforts to act simultaneously on behalf of children and on behalf of themselves. Taken together, these essays remind us that carework--the work that mothers do--must be recognized as foundational to our political and personal well-being." -- Meredith W. Michaels, coauthor of The Mommy Myth: The Idealization of Motherhood and How It Has Undermined All Women
