About the Author:

Wendy Luttrell is Associate Professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and author of School-smart and Mother-wise: Working-Class Women's Identity and Schooling (Routledge), winner of the 1998 Oliver Cromwell Cox Award from the American Sociological Association's Section on Racial and Ethnic Minorities.

Review:

"A beautiful, moving book about the way in which poor young pregnant women are positioned as objects of shaming and pathologising practices. "Pregnant Bodies, Fertile Minds is a searing indictment of current social policies."
-Valerie Walkerdine, author of "Growing Up Girl: Psychosocial Explorations of Gender and Class
"A breakthrough book....[A] rich ethnographic study....Theoretically sophisticated and beautifully written, this study uses original and innovative methodology to raise and reflect upon issues of gender, race, culture, and the institutional structure of schools."
-Kathleen Weiler, editor of "Feminist Engagements: Reading, Resisting, and Revisioning Male Theorists in Education and Cultural Studies
"An extraordinary and moving book and a theoretical and ethnographic stunner. It is hard to imagine that anyone other than her subjects themselves could portray their voices and selves with such compelling immediacy and liveliness better than Luttrell. A brilliant contribution to our greater knowledge of the worlds of gender, motherhood, race, and adolescence."
-Nancy Chodorow, author of "The Power of Feelings: Personal Meaning in Psychoanalysis, Gender, and Culture
"The triumph of "Pregnant Bodies, Fertile Minds is that it manages to weave the social worlds of girls, the social stigma of pregnancy, and the social policies that swaddle these young women in and out of school into a compassionate and haunting ethnography."
-Carol Stack, author of "All Our Kin
