The Maternal is Political: Women Writers at the Intersection of Motherhood and Social Change

by Edited by Sari Macdonald
£9.99   paperback  Avalon Publishing Group (2008)

The Maternal is Political: Women Writers at the Intersection of Motherhood and Social Change by Edited by Sari Macdonald The saying is true: The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world. And the world has never needed mothers more. World and national leaders can't agree on how to educate our children or empower us to feed our families, on how to join together as a global community or keep us safe. Fortunately, mothers - the most underestimated and unsung political group - hold the future in their arms and hands.
 
Whether they're starting ambitious movements by taking on urgent matters that affect millions or speaking quietly within their homes and communities, the mothers in this collection are, like mothers everywhere, making a difference one person, one issue, one wrong-that-needs-righting at a time. For moms who are willing to fight that good fight, The Maternal is Political is a comfort, an inspiration, fuel for the fire, and a roadmap to a better future... for us and for all of our children.
