Encyclopedia of Motherhood – Sharon Hays

This is an entry in The Encylopedia of Motherhood (Sage, 2010) I wrote on the sociologist  Sharon Hays. She is the author of a critically important book in motherhood studies, The Cultural Contradictions of Motherhood. This short piece gives an overview of Hays’ key ideas and work.  You can also read the introduction for the Encyclopedia of Motherhood by the editor Professor Andrea O’Reilly.
