Mothering the Self : Mothers, Daughters, Subjects, Paperback Book

Mothering the Self : Mothers, Daughters, Subjects Paperback

Part of the Transformations series

Description

The mother-daughter relationship has preoccupied feminist writers for decades, but typically it has been the daughter's story at centre-stage.

Mothering the Self brings together these maternal and daughterly stories by drawing on in-depth interviews with women who speak both as mothers and as daughters.

This study examines the ways in which these mothers and daughters participate in their understanding of class, gender, and race locations, both using and resisting them.

The result is a fresh start from which to consider the far-reaching implications of this relationship - not simply for mothers and daughters, but in terms of how we understand the shaping of the self and its place within the social world.
