Benn argues that there has been an unrecognised social revolution centering on experience of motherhood versus society's ideas of women's lives in the 90s. Whilst women are supposed to have it all there is a gap between women's experience of being mothers and societal perceptions of motherhood. Originally published in 1998 by Jonathan Cape.

Madonna and Child Summary


Madonna and Child: Politics of Modern Motherhood by Melissa Benn

Betty Friedan announced the end of the family. Melissa Benn argues that there has been a revolution in women's lives, but not as Friedan had prophesied; whilst women are supposed to have it all - work, children, family - there is a yawning gap between women's experience of being mothers and political, policy, societal perceptions of motherhood. Herself a mother and writing from very immediate experience, Melissa Benn is exposing realities which will make us all think anew about our expectations of women today.
