From the Back Cover:

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? These and other compelling questions are answered in this groundbreaking collection of essays on the mother and son relationship. Many of the essays cover neglected terrain, 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.
