   schema:reviewBody ""Motherhood: Power and Oppression expands the scholarship on motherhood from a feminist perspective, examining particularly how motherhood is simultaneously a site of power and of oppression. The collection draws on psychological, historical, sociological, literary, and cultural approaches to inquiry. It includes methodology and theory from a wide range of interdisciplinary perspectives: qualitative, quantitative, corporeal, legal, religious, fictional, mythological, dramatic and action research, and feminist research and practice. The book would be of interest to the many scholars who teach and carry out research on motherhood and on the family, as well in the more general fields of women's studies and cultural studies."--Jacket." ;
