"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? Tel est l'enjeu du débat qu'étudie Elisabeth Badinter, au fil d'une très précise enquête historique menée avec lucidité mais non sans passion. L'amour en plus, un livre passionnant, dérangeant

XY, on masculine identity by Élisabeth Badinter( Book )
63 editions published between 1986 and 2013 in 13 languages and held by 1,002 libraries worldwide
Drawing on biological examples, historical and sociological analyses, fiction, and biography, Elisabath Badinter offers a groundbreaking account of the new man, which our century is in the process of inventing. Now updated to take into account the 1994 discovery of the female gene, XY delineates the shape of this new man. Woman, Badinter asserts, simply exists, while man must be constructed. As long as women give birth to males and the male gene XY develops within the female XX, this construction will persist. XY points out that girls are naturally initiated into "womanhood" through the biological process of menstruation. For boys, however, this initiation is seen not as natural process but as educative advancement, usually embodied in societal rite of passage. But in the contemporary culture of disenchantment, where cynicism has largely drained such rituals of meaning, the transition has become uncertain
The conflict : how modern motherhood undermines the status of women by Élisabeth Badinter( Book )
26 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 951 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

Portraits de l'ensemble des hommes (et des rares femmes) qui ont marqué la vie intellectuelle du 18e siècle.

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
