About this product
- DescriptionThe media flurry over the recent birth of octuplets, the obsession with celebrity moms and baby bump sightings, LGBT mums and men as mums - fascination with motherhood is at an all-time high. But what does it mean to be a mother in this moment? Televised debates pit stay-at-home mums against working mums, but the majority of mothers pursue both family and paid employment. Why is so much of the discussion around mothering about choice and agency, when women's reproductive rights are vulnerable and the pro-choice movement is on the defensive? This book addresses these cultural contradictions in personal essays, analysis, fiction, and artwork.
