Abstract

In this essay we consider how to teach the connections between women’sroles as mothers and as paid workers. Our interest is to identify curricula and pedagogies that can illuminate how societies define what working mothers should (or should not) do and the ways that institutionalized arrangements shape women’s experiences inside and outside the home. Although this topic can be of interest to a variety of audiences, our primary focus is on strategies for expanding the awareness of traditional-age college students on the ways mothering and employment intersect and how these intersections are shaped by cultural and policy frameworks.
