Description

Who is the juggling mother, the woman who quietly flicks dried cereal off her blazer while running a corporate empire? The Juggling Mother explores the figure of contemporary mothering in media representations: a typically white, middle-class woman on the verge of coming undone because of her unwieldy slate of labours. More troublingly, she also serves as a model neoliberal worker who upholds white privilege and notions of mastery, capacity, and productivity. Amanda Watson makes the controversial case that mothers with the most power are complicit in the exclusion of less privileged ones – and in their own undoing.
