Editorial Reviews

Review

The most important work on feminist education I have ever read--the most comprehensive, the most profound, the richest in implications.

(Feminist Teacher)

An elegantly written and compellingly argued book that breaks new ground in both the philosophy of education and feminist theory. It ties together these two domains through the actual lived experience of women who teach.... The author grounds her insights on personal reflection and a broad range of theoretical perspectives.... A 'top-notch' work that fills a unique place in the literature. It is the kind of book that should begin to appear on reading lists for a wide range of education and women's studies courses. A must for all four-year college libraries.

(Choice)

Casts new light on our understanding of the structure of pedagogy and the psychology of the teaching process. It inspires teachers, women and men, to nurture the active engagement of children in a shared quest for knowledge. Beautifully written, Bitter Milk provides a major resource for women's studies, education, psychology, and philosophy, and for faculties, teachers, and those who would teach in new and renewed ways.

(Contemporary Psychology)

Grumet's writing style is fluid; her manipulation of ideas facile. Teachers, principals, curriculum coordinators, school board members, and superintendents could benefit by reading Ms. Grumet's analysis of the typical male-dominated school curriculum.... A meaningful offering in the area of feminist curriculum criticism.

(Journal of Social Studies Research)

Format: Paperback
Grumet is dealing with the contradictions that the female teacher faces in the (gendered) dialectic between the home, and the public school. How does the woman, who is both a mother, and a teacher negotiate the requirements of these two roles? She suggests a curriculum situated in the middle ground, where "other people's children" are cared for with the same concern that one has for their own children. Densely beautiful, I devoured it.

This book completely changed how I viewed myself as both a woman and a teacher. If you are interested in how the career of teaching has evolved for women, this book is for you.
