Re-imagining Mothering and Career: Insights from a Time of Crisis
The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the global world but impacted women with children and careers disproportionately. The social, familial, and professional strains of this crisis birthed with it the opportunity to reflect on the values, expectations, lifestyle, and priorities that have defined motherhood. This book uplifts the shared consciousness of motherhood; the common veil that transcends time, region, and boundary. Part contemporary anthology, part historical narrative, and fully nestled in the tenets of psychological science, this book spotlights the awakenings of 33 mothers of varied ages, ethnicities, family compositions, and professional backgrounds in the United States as they renegotiated motherhood and career. Each reflection offers a window into the heart of a career mother, capturing the kaleidoscope of her struggles, vulnerabilities, and hopes, while empowering her insights. The reflections are bound together by themes that cut across lived maternal experiences, bringing to light a powerful creed for a life re-imagined– one that propels mothers forward in all of their roles.
