The Conflict: How Modern Motherhood Undermines the Status of Women
Tethered. Readers looking for something controversial to read may consider Elizabeth Badinter’s The Conflict: How Modern Motherhood Undermines the Status of Women. Think of this as the anti-La Leche League book on motherhood, sure to raise the hackles of many readers who have a different point of view. Badinter’s key point is that contemporary expectations of mothers tethers them so closely to their children that the stimulating adult lives of these women becomes stifled. Readers wanting to toss a lit firecracker into some close familial relationship can consider presenting this book as a gift to a particular relative.
