Summary This volume examines the role of feminism within motherhood and offers insight into the core questions of motherhood: what it means to be a good mother, what role mothers play in the family and in society, and how motherhood has been redefined throughout time. The author speculates on the future directions of feminism -- focusing on the expansion of contemporary mother activism that has occurred in the last 15 years, and emphasizing the need for that expansion to continue -- and examines how the changing world of motherhood fits into feminist activism.
