Description: How can feminist women raise feminist sons? How can today's mothers teach their sons to be strong but not domineering, aggressive but not controlling, opinionated but not single-minded? How can young men learn to be nurturers? These and many other compelling questions are answered in this groundbreaking collection of essays on the mother and son relationship. Many of the essays cover terrain that has been neglected, including such topics as feminism, sexism, masculinity, homophobia, and racism. The contributors speak from their experiences as mothers and explore how the institution of motherhood can oppress women, impede mother-son identification and foster sexism. The impact of the feminist movement on the mother-son relationship is explored in-depth here for the first time. These deeply personal reflections include stories of lesbian mothers identifying challenges in raising sons in our heterosexist culture as well as black mothers, Jewish mothers, and single mothers discussing the struggles they face. For all with an interest in family issues, gender issues, or a new perspective on mothering, this book is a must read.
