Practicing Feminist Mothering explores the realities of feminist mothering for mothers and their children. It examines the material spaces that feminist mothers create to struggle with patriarchy. Based on in-depth interviews with 16 feminist mothers, and with their now-adult children, this work provides a rich understanding of the tensions within feminism surrounding issues of mothering and the reproduction of feminism itself, and offers a powerful perspective on mothering as a central aspect of feminism.
Fiona Green is a feminist mother and is also author of Feminist Mothering in Theory and Practice, 1985-1995 and many articles and book chapters on feminism and mothering.
This launch is presented in association with the Institute for Women's and Gender Studies at the University of Winnipeg.
