Working and Mothering in Asia

Images, Ideologies and Identities

The contributors approach their subject from various academic disciplines - anthropology, sociology, gender studies, demography and law - but their writings identify a number of common themes, including patriarchy, labor and relationships, strategies of accommodation, conflict and emotion management, the role of fathers, socio-cultural definitions of ’good mothering’, and the political meanings of ’maternity’ and ’family’.
