Summary
"In a society where becoming a mother is naturalized, "unbecoming" a mother - the process of coming to live apart from biological children - is regarded as unnatural, improper, or even contemptible, Few mothers are more stigmatized than those who are perceived as having given up, surrendered, or abandoned their birth children. Unbecoming Mothers: The Social Production of Maternal Absence examines this phenomenon within the social and historical context of parenting in Canada, Australia, Britain, and the United States, with critical observations from social workers, policymakers, and historians. This unique book offers insights from the perspectives of children on the outside looking in and the lived experiences of women on the inside looking out."--Jacket
