Who's Your Mama?: The Unsung Voices of Women and Mothers

Who's Your Mama?: The Unsung Voices of Women and Mothers

by Yvonne Bynoe

Half Price! Unlike other motherhood books that focus on the experiences of a small group of affluent, married white women, Who's Your Mama? centers on the  untold perspectives of the majority of American women, whose unique and unconventional family structures impact our country. Their contributions speak practically of their personal beliefs, intimate relationships, and socioeconomic realities.

Exploring the intersection of motherhood and other facets of the contributors’ lives, including race, class, sexuality, politics, and personal tragedy, these personal stories include a feminist juggling the roles of activist and mother, a college graduate who applies for welfare so she can remain home with her child, a gay couple’s navigation of the adoption process, and a mother’s celebration of her own vibrant sexuality. This collection of personal narratives will illuminate various female experiences of parenting and humanize a variety of social and economic issues that affect millions of American women and their families.
