About this product
- SynopsisAlthough sisterhood has been the most powerful metaphor for relationships between women, this book discusses the mother-daughter relationship which, in all its complexity, more successfully symbolizes the diversity of women's relationships. While recent theorizing has focused on the role of mothers and mothering, far less attention has been given to the active role taken by women as daughters. By placing the focus on daughtering,Daughtering and Motheringoffers concepts that extend the normal boundaries of psychoanalytical theory. Daughtering and Motheringdevelops its discussion from viewpoints in psychoanalysis and psychology as well as cultural anthropology. The contributors first critique the sexual dimension of female subjectivity--the notion that the father is necessarily the first sexual object. They also discuss contextual issues, examining women's roles in therapy, management and education, as well as in external relations. Finally, they argue thatthe concept of "good-enough-mothering" is an idealized version of the mother-daughter relationship, and one which can only enhance existing patterns of dominance by class, race or culture.
