The 21st Century Motherhood Movement: Mothers Speak Out on Why We Need to Change the World and How To Do It comes out this month. You can buy it from here. The book is edited by Andrea O’Reilly and it is an amazing piece of work. Andrea is a dynamo!
Anne Crittenden, the author of The Price of Motherhood: Why the Most Important Job in the World is Still the Least Valued (seriously one of the most incredible books ever written about motherhood), has said this about the Motherhood Movement book:
This rich anthology documents the modern mother’s movement in all its diversity. It is must reading for anyone interested in the explosion of activism aimed at the empowerment of women as mothers. Mamazons, outlaw mothers, strategic essentialists, on-line pragmatists, lesbian theorists, and more than 80 organizations representing every class, creed and color of mother – they are all here. If you want clear picture of 21st century matrocentric feminism, look no further – this is it.
I have a chapter in the book, too. Yes, I’m crazy proud of that fact.
