Editorial Reviews

Review

Andrea O Reilly offers us a compelling look at a nascent movement whose force cannot be denied. This invaluable and comprehensive collection conveys the excitement, tensions, and potential of motherhood as a rallying cry. Bringing together a variety of perspectives and voices in a rich mix, it explores the many facets of maternal activism and provides a much-needed resource for anyone who wants to understand mothers efforts to make the personal political. --Pamela Stone, Hunter College and Graduate Center of the City University of New York and author of Opting Out? Why Women Really Quit Careers and Head Home

This rich anthology documents the modern mother s movement in all of its diversity. It is must reading for anyone interested in the explosion of activism aimed at the empowerment of women as mothers. Mamazons, outlaw mothers, strategic essentialists, on-line pragmatists, lesbian theorists, and more than 80 organizations representing every class, creed and color of mother - they are all here. If you want a clear picture of 21st century matrocentric feminism, look no further - this is it. --Ann Crittenden, author of The Price of Motherhood: Why the Most Important Job in the World is Still the Least Valued
