Challenges the familiar cultural image of the "good" mother through a feminist collection of essays. Showing how constricting and damaging that stereotype is, the contributors replace an unreal, narrow deal with the complexity and diversity of real mothers' lives. Drawing from their broad range of backgrounds and experiences, the writers show the many and varied ways in which women are transforming motherhood.
