Description


Through a series of focus group interviews and an analysis of the media and popular culture, Mothers Work examines the institution of motherhood and the arenas in which mothering occurs. Michelle Napierski-Prancl explores shared and divergent experiences, perspectives, lives, and challenges through the voices of experts on the topic of motherhood: the mothers themselves. Mothers Work analyzes how mothers feel about themselves, each other, and the culture that situates them against one another.
