Images of 'good mothers' saturate the media, yet so too do images of mothers who do not fit this mold. Numerous scholars have addressed 'bad mothers' in the media, arguing that these images are a necessary counterpoint that serves to buttress the 'good mother' myth. The authors in this volume explore how images of mothers have expanded beyond the good/bad dichotomy, simultaneously and sometimes paradoxically serving to reinforce, fracture, and/or transcend the ideology of good motherhood.
