Abstract or Description

The article focuses on maternity in the new bio-politics of the family. The work "The Anti-Social Family" is considered as an instructive material as it also discusses the oppressive aspects of domesticity and the tyranny of maternity as well as the exclusion of lesbian women who had few possibilities for maternity. The author says the post-feministry view of maternity puts young mothers in a field of anxieties caused by the promise of perfection.
