This paper analyses the complex relationship between motherhood and work, a topic ambiguously dealt with in much of the socio-economic literature and current European policies.

Abstract

This paper analyses the complex relationship between motherhood and work, a topic ambiguously dealt with in much of the socio-economic literature and current European policies. A relational perspective, on the other hand, can identify the distinctive elements of this issue, avoiding the reduction of motherhood to the procreative choice and its regulation by purely functional policies focused on workfare and individual rights. This relational framework, supported by relevant statistical findings and international literature, can thus provide an insight into the many-nuanced “new female identity”.
