The Future of Motherhood
“This provocative book is not against motherhood—it is for women—and men. Declaring that motherhood as practiced in the United States is harmful to both mothers and children, Dr. Jessie Bernard points out that current attitudes toward maternity were determined in Victorian England. As society begins to accept innovations like salaries for housewives and even male hormone injections for noncompetitive women, Dr. Bernard asks that each of the sexes share its particular strengths with the other. Motherhood, she says, is too important to be left to women alone. “And we are all in this together.”
