Illuminating women’s clout and influence both online and in the political realm, , Mothers of Intention studies the rise of the motherhood political movement and how online and social media tools have enabled women to become a larger and more powerful presence in the world of politics and activism.
Recognizing the fact that women make up the majority of online users and influencers, Bamberger traces this influence across the intersections of politics, motherhood and social media. Mothers of Intention, with its myriad stories and opinions, sheds light on a strong undercurrent that most of the political realm ignores – women’s voices, and more specifically, those of mothers. This book attests to the increasing importance of mothers’ opinions for elections to come.
“Mothers of intention” are women diverse in geography, ethnicity, age and political persuasion, who pursue a world of more political discourse through their powerful, thoughtful and humorous voices.
