We Are Our Mothers? Daughters

News correspondent Cokie Roberts, author of a meaningful book titled We are

Our Mothers? Daughters, published in 1998, call number 001-170, discusses significant

issues facing women today in her book. She takes her readers on a personal and political

journey, exploring the diverse roles women have played throughout American history and

the connections and distinctions among different generations of women. On a personal

level, each essay is an introduction to several of the fascination women Roberts has

encountered during the course of her reporting career; she also relates powerful and

moving life stories about the women in her life, like her mother former Congresswoman

Lindy Boggs.

Roberts style is unique. Roberts takes you through intimate stories of

extraordinary women; these women become the beginning for more extensive discussions

of women?s position in politics, business, motherhood, and marriage, as well as other

issues. Roberts examines the nature of women?s roles, from mother to mechanic, sister to

soldier, from her personal experience. Roberts is very sincere to her feelings in her writing

in this book. I felt just as she was happy or sad.

She begins her writing with the intense story of her sister, whom dies from cancer

at a young age. The story of her mothers life as a politician next. Roberts also, wrote

about an aunt of hers, a soldier, mechanic, friend, reporter, civil rights activist, wife, and

an enterpriser. She concludes her book by her last chapter titled A Women?s Place. She

discusses all the important roles of the women she wrote about and how they tie together.

A women?s place is everywhere and anywhere in today?s world.

She worked her writing by writing about the women that were close to her and

extended from there to other fascinating women she encountered in her career. Roberts

dedicated a chapter to each women she wrote about.

This book from my view is sensitive, strait forward, and perceptive. It also shows

such a diversity of choices and perspectives available to women today and greatly affirms

the bond of females powerful inter connection among all women, whatever their

background. I would suggest anyone interested in where a women belong and the history

of women should read this selection. It?s just one of those bookes, where from start to end

you might cry or laugh. I garuntee when you begin to read, you will not want to stop till

you have read the entire book.
