Notes:
Before they become mothers, women are repeatedly reminded that their biological clock is ticking. Once pregnant, a woman's body becomes public property: she is patronised, panicked, and forbidden from exercising her autonomy. In labour, women's wishes are overridden, resulting in potentially life-changing injuries and trauma. When the baby comes home, women begin a life of pay cuts, lost job opportunities, heavier housework, unequal emotional loads, and judgement from all sides. State support and family networks have fallen away, and mothers are censured for every 'choice' they make - if they are given real choices at all. In this book, Eliane Glaser asks why mothers are idealised, yet treated so poorly; why campaigns for mothers have become so unfashionable; and what we need to do to shift the needle and improve the business of child-rearing for everyone.
