What does “motherhood” mean in the 21st Century?  Images of June Cleaver do not represent the typical mother today.  Instead women are balancing motherhood with career, activism, and a host of other activities.  In addition, mothers are dealing with critical issues impacting themselves and their children as a result of our changing society.  This conference will address the growing and changing role of motherhood and will offer expert testimony about the many issues facing mothers in the 21st century.  Areas that will addressed include the complex role of motherhood today, motherhood and depression, the necessity of preserving the living history of mothers, and violence against mothers.

The Women’s Council at Claremont Graduate University and American Mothers Inc are co-sponsoring this event.  I’ll be there talking about motherhood and depression.
