Ideologies of Motherhood among Low-Income Women in Rural New York

Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to look at low-income women`s attitudes about motherhood. Semi structured interviews were conducted for low-income women who use the Planned Parenthood Family Planning Education program. Preliminary findings suggest that poor, disadvantaged women who are mostly white see ideal mothers as being middle class and living in the suburbs. Respondents in the study claimed that a good mother would have a husband actively involved in the child`s life and that the mother would stay home to take care of the children. Most respondents either considered themselves unfit to be a mother, or they were viewed by others as unfit to be a mother. Low income women were more likely to say that they did not meet the standard that they have for what a good mother would be like. This study has the potential to inform us about the role of parenting in these women`s lives through the exploration of ideologies of motherhood.
