Book Description

June 1995 0231096801 978-0231096805 0
This collection of essays presents an examination of many facets of the status of motherhood and the position of mothers in our society. The unifying theme of the contributions is that mothers must often operate within legal constraints that contradict behavioural norms.

Editorial Reviews


This excellent contribution to women's studies literature on mothering intentionally defines mothering as more than just a burden on women seeking emancipation or a feminine essence that women seek to express; it sees struggle and practice difficulty interwoven with social ideology and legal practices. Strongly recommended. -- Choice --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
