The Motherhood Business

Consumption, Communication, and Privilege

Unknown - 2015
Rate this:
The essays in this work examine how consumer culture both constrains and empowers contemporary motherhood. The collection demonstrates that the logic of consumerism and entrepreneurship has redefined both the experience of mothering and the marketplace. The Motherhood Business follows the harried mother's path into the anxious maelstrom of intelligent toys, healthy foods and meals, and educational choices. It also traces how some enterprising mothers leverage cultural capital and rhetorical vision to create thriving baby- and child-based businesses of their own, as evidenced by the rise of mommy bloggers and "mompreneurs" over the last decade.
