About this title


Drawing on interviews with a diverse range of mothers and daughters who experienced the era of Women's Liberation, a timely cultural study describes the stresses and rewards of being and having a feminist mother.


Do women who whip up the winds of change instill the same revolutionary fervor in their children? Do they live contradictions? Do they make good mothers? In some ways, yes, in other ways, no. In a series of intriguing interviews done by a mother-daughter team, 23 contemporary feminists and their daughters share moments of connection and conflict in their lives. That many of these talented, politically-driven mothers were a tough act to live with or to follow is a given; that their daughters should often--albeit sometimes grudgingly--come to appreciate their vision, grit, and will to shift mountains is a blessing.
