Taking readers on a provocative tour through thirty years of media images about mothers -- the superficial achievements of celebrity moms, the sensational coverage of dangerous day care, the media-manufactured "mommy wars" between working mothers and stay-at-home moms, and more -- The Mommy Myth contends that this "new momism" has been shaped by out-of-date mores, and that no matter how hard they try, women will never achieve it. In this must-read for every woman, Susan J. Douglas and Meredith W. Michaels shatter the myth of the perfect mom and all but shout, "We're not gonna take it anymore!"… (mere)

I really, really, really like this book. I like it so much I've read it 3/4 of the way through--twice. I think my problem in finishing it is that I get so angry when I read about the things my mother was up against in the 70s and 80s (e.g., legislation that got squashed by old rich men--mostly Republicans, but not all--that would have really helped her out) that I have to put down the book and think about it, and then I don't pick it up again. :-) I read it first when we were still deciding whether or not to have children, and this time, when my son was five (clearly, it did not deter me from reproducing, but it did make me think about things I hadn't considered). It's a great read; I just have a hard time reading it all the way to the end. ( )

One of the more important books of this century for those wishing to counteract the bright, shining stories of the "opt out" revolution. The authors do a good job of looking at the history and evolution of the myth of the feminine motherhood instinct, and include a thorough examination of that nasty piece of business thrown at all women in their 30s (no matter how many children they already have): the biological clock. A good corrective to relentless pro-natalism. ( )

It made a lot of good points, especially about how mothers are portrayed in the news media (the topics of crack babies and child safety in particular), but I really didn't like their major beef with Attachment Parenting. I don't see anything anti-feminist about understanding that babies need the best, most compassionate care we can give them. ( )

This was definitely an interesting read for a women's studies major headed to college in about a month. It looked at media treatment of mother and motherhood over the past thirty years or so. It covered a variety of topics from celebrity moms, to the "mommy wars," to toy marketing. I found the chapter on toy marketing to be fascinating, as well as the sections on Susan Smith and Andrea Yates, It is quite interesting to compare their treatment by the media. Overall, a fascinating read. ( )

This is a nice introduction to the ways in which the motherhood mystique hurts women and children (and sells products). It's sort of Ann Crittendon's The Price of Motherhood lite. Crittendon is better, but this is not a bad place to start looking into the issue. ( )
