In Praise of the Anecdotal Woman (Paperback)Jacqueline Andrews (author)
Paperback 64 Pages / Published: 20/12/1993

Questioning whether sexes are actually "opposite" or are they so profoundly "different" that this neat and popular phrase obscures certain crucial points, this book explores areas as diverse as linguistic theory, the implications of our reproductive systems, and the relationship between femaleness and knowledge, which topics, she says, are inseparable. Combining theory and research, the author articulates the experiences of women who have had babies during the course of their degree studies. It is the "head-on" collision of new motherhood with academic demands and the incommensurability of those systems that provides the basis for her investigation.
