Mother/Daughter Dialog(ic)s...

In 1995 I wrote an article called “Mother/Daughter Dialog(ic)s In, Around and About Amy Tan’s The Joy Luck Club for a collection edited by Nancy Owen Nelson, entitled Private Voices/Public Lives. In it, I confessed that “As a mother of a daughter in an era [1970s] when feminism was demanding a place for women in male-dominated culture, I often felt the conflicts among my perceived duty to socialize her toward survival and success in a masculine world, my determination not to replicate my own mother, and my desire to be my own woman and to let my daughter be hers.” Now, watching the hit TV series, Better Things, I see that the conflicts between mothers and daughters continue in our time. Do you agree? Do you also have generational stories to tell?
