Yorkwrites Salutes Professor Andrea O'Reilly

York Women’s Studies Professor Andrea O’Reilly’s latest work is an in-depth, insightful examination of motherhood in a changing social and political climate. Edited by Professor O’Reilly, Feminist Mothering (SUNY Press, 2008) explores the distinction between “the patriarchal institution of motherhood and women’s experiences of mothering, which are female-defined and centred and potentially empowering to women,” says O’Reilly.

A leading scholar of motherhood, motherwork and feminism, Professor O’Reilly is the co-editor or editor of 12 books on motherhood. She is also the founder and director of the Association for Research on Mothering (ARM).
