Product Description


...this book is both informative and evocative..
–Journal of Personal and Social Relationships, October 2002

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.

HASH(0xa3d33168) out of 5 stars Son of a Feminist Aug. 19 2009
By K. DauSchmidt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The book examines many women's perspectives, but never once examines the sons' perspective and the obvious question of the negative impact of feminist male bashing on sons. I was "orphaned" by feminism as it lead my Mom not only to divorce my Dad, but also to champion women at every turn over even me, her own flesh and blood. Now at 53 I see the hollowness of my Mom's assertions that men always have advantages and that there is some male conspiracy out there to ensure my success over women. My Mom's feminist teachings merely made me a tool for women's agendas, which could never include my own success since I was a man. My Mom's feminism not only separated me from my father, it separated me from her and set me up for a life of exploitation by less deserving but more politically savy feminists in the academy.
