"A marvelous collection . . . unified by its determination to speak on behalf of mothers assailed by government policies, social institutions and a culture of mother blaming. . . . These essays open the way for more direct, compassionate, respectful and constructive responses to the dilemmas facing families and mothers." -Alison M. Jaggar, author of Feminist Politics and Human Nature
