At the Breast: Ideologies of Breastfeeding & Motherhood in the Contemporary United States
Linda M. Blum. A discussion about breastfeeding is really a larger conversation about sexuality, class, race, & the control of maternal bodies. Interviewing 3 groups of women, Blum discovers that the desirability & possibility of breastfeeding varies greatly. The white middle-class married mothers of La Leche League find breastfeeding a deeply gratifying experience of embodiment. But the white working-class mothers often find breastfeeding an anxiety-evoking reminder of uncertain respectability. And the Black working-class mothers consider breastfeeding an undesirable practice that carries reminders of the painful history of relations between Blacks & whites. Blum links experience, ideologies, material circumstances, & everyday practices.
