Description

Practicing Feminist Mothering explores the realities of feminist mothering for both mothers and their children. It scrutinizes the discourse of motherhood by examining the material spaces that feminist mothers create to struggle with patriarchy. The book is based on in-depth interviews of sixteen feminist mothers and their adult children, one of whom is now a mother. Conducted from 1995 to 2007, they provide a rich understanding of the tensions within feminism surrounding issues of mothering and the reproduction of feminism itself. It illuminates the complexities of generational dynamics by exploring how the children mothered by self-conscious feminists think of feminism and mothering in their adult lives. By developing concepts of matroreform and motherlines, this book provides a powerful perspective on mothering as a central aspect of feminism.
