Academic Mothers in the Developing World

ISBN: 9781569025536
This book is a welcome and noteworthy addition to the field of mothering, motherhood, and gender studies. Methodically and with precision, each chapter provides an introduction, discussion on research, analysis of the findings, exploration of the participants’ narratives, and conclusion.  The accessible studies strike a solid balance on the interpersonal and multidimensional models of academic mothers and the most insightful components are the voices of the interviewees, especially as they highlight the diverse roles of academic mothers in the selected countries.  As the authors’ poignantly posit, these women “express concerns about their family, social and labour routines, and their roles as mother, academic professional and a woman.”
