We Are Our Mothers' Daughters?
Grady, Marilyn L.; LaCost, Barbara Y.
Journal of Women in Educational Leadership, v2 n2 p71-72 Apr 2004
Writing that makes one think, writing that enriches one's understanding of the past and present, that's what Cokie Roberts' book, "We Are Our Mothers' Daughters" provides, and that, too, is what the authors of this issue of the "Journal of Women in Educational Leadership" provide. Roberts' background as a news analyst covering politics, Congress and public policy, as well as her heritage as the daughter of Lindy Boggs, Congresswoman and Ambassador to the Vatican, inform her perspectives on women of the past and present. A number of the observations and vignettes from Roberts' book offers perspective to the topics addressed by those who write for and read the "Journal of Women in Educational Leadership." In her book, Roberts noted that "women have always played many roles at the same time" (p. 6). The word "multitasking" may be kitschy but hardly an original concept for women!
