Top 10 Tuesday: Motherhood

I can post a Top 10 Tuesday on Wednesday, right? It feels appropriate given the list is about motherhood and I didn’t have time to post yesterday due to… motherhood. Ha!

Since joining the club I’ve been reading up on pregnancy, motherhood and babies, largely from a feminist standpoint because that’s my jam. It has been one year since I worked my last shift of the job I held for 10 years. I have always been employed and never imagined I would be making the shift to stay-at-home Mom. If you told me this time last year that’s what I would be I would have told you you were crazy. I’m learning to embrace the change and reading about other women’s experiences has been really fascinating, and so has reading about raising kids (particularly girls). Here’s a list of the books I’ve covered so far… technically it’s a Top 13, but who’s counting?

  1. The means of reproduction by Michelle Goldberg
  2. Misconceptions by Naomi Wolf
  3. Of woman born by Adrienne Rich
  4. Perfect madness by Judith Warner
  5. Why have kids? by Jessica Valenti
  6. Like a mother by Angela Garbes
  7. Pushed by Jennifer Block
  8. The mommy myth by Susan J. Douglas
  9. Delusions of gender by Cordelia Fine
  10. Far from the tree by Andrew Solomon
  11. The feminists guide to raising a little princess by Devorah Blacher
  12. Don’t call me princess by Peggy Orenstein
  13. The motherhood affidavits by Laura Jean Baker
  14. And Now we have everything by Meaghan O’Connel
