The conflict : how modern motherhood undermines the status of women by Élisabeth Badinter( Book )
32 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 960 libraries worldwide
In this book the author Identifies vulnerabilities in today's parenting models for women, arguing that current recommendations are imposing 1950s era limitations at the expense of women's health, fatherhood, and child independence. Progressive modern motherhood is seen as a threat to women's freedom. The author names a reactionary shift that is intensely felt but has not been clearly articulated until now, a shift that America has pioneered. She reserves special ire for the orthodoxy of the La Leche League, an offshoot of conservative Evangelicalism, showing how on demand breastfeeding, with all its limitations, curtails women's choices. Moreover, the pressure to provide children with 24/7 availability and empathy has produced a generation of overwhelmed and guilt laden mothers, one cause of the West's alarming decline in birthrate. The author has for decades been in the vanguard of the European fight for women's equality. In this book she points her finger at a most unlikely force undermining the status of women: liberal motherhood, in thrall to all that is "natural." Attachment parenting, co-sleeping, baby-wearing, and especially breast-feeding, these hallmarks of contemporary motherhood have succeeded in tethering women to the home and family to an extent not seen since the 1950s. She argues that the taboos now surrounding epidurals, formula, disposable diapers, cribs, and anything that distracts a mother's attention from her offspring have turned childrearing into a singularly regressive force. This work is a scathing indictment of a stealthy zealotry that cheats women of their full potential

"L'amour maternel est-il un instinct qui procéderait d'une " nature féminine ", ou bien relève-t-il largement d'un comportement social, variable selon les époques et les moeurs?

XY, on masculine identity by Élisabeth Badinter( Book )
5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 532 libraries worldwide
Exploring the shifting inscriptions of male identity in the popular imagination, Badinter examines changing role models for masculine identity - from cowboy in the 1950s to Terminator in the 1990s, from flesh-and-blood man to machine. She suggests that men need new role models and that sufficient room needs to be left for the expression of male vulnerability, a psychic space that would accept attitudes and behaviors traditionally labeled as "feminine." This new model, Badinter argues, may reduce the profound effects of homophobia and misogyny

Etude d'histoire sociale et littéraire sur deux femmes qui ont joué un rôle dans les salons du 18e siècle. Le portrait de ces deux femmes illustre deux aspects de l'ambition: l'ambition personnelle et l'ambition maternelle. Leur refus d'accepter les limites de la société de l'époque et leur carrière prestigieuse dans le monde littéraire et philosophique du "Siècle des lumières" font de ces femmes des figures marquantes de leur époque. L'une était la maîtresse de Voltaire, l'autre de Grimm. Le titre du livre s'explique ainsi: Emilie était le nom de l'une et le surnom de l'autre
Les passions intellectuelles by Élisabeth Badinter( Book )
49 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 318 libraries worldwide
Portraits de l'ensemble des hommes (et des rares femmes) qui ont marqué la vie intellectuelle du 18e siècle. Dans ce premier volume de 550 pages, c'est dire l'ampleur de cette galerie de portraits, on s'intéresse à la naissance de l'ambition personnelle. L'intellectuel, désormais, entend être reconnu et commence à exiger "honneur, gloire et argent". Voilà une façon originale de présenter l'histoire des idées sous l'angle biographique. L'auteure ne s'embarrasse pas d'un cadre théorique très lourd. Sa documentation est remarquable et son style soutient l'intérêt. Ce volume sera suivi de deux autres
