The media flurry over the recent birth of octuplets, the obsession with celebrity mums and baby bump sightings, LGBT mums and men as moms means that fascination with motherhood is at an all-time high. But what does it mean to be a mother in this moment? Why is so much of the discussion around mothering about choice and agency, when women's reproductive rights are vulnerable and the prochoice movement is on the defensive? Mother addresses these cultural contradictions in personal essays, analysis, fiction and artwork.
