While the practice of surrogacy has existed for millennia, new fertility technologies have allowed women to act as gestational surrogates, carrying children that are not genetically their own. While some women volunteer to act as gestational surrogates for friends or family members, others get paid for performing this service. The first ethnographic study of gestational surrogacy in the United States, Labor of Love examines the conflicted attitudes that emerge when the ostensibly priceless act of bringing a child into the world becomes a paid occupation. Heather Jacobson interviews not only surrogate mothers, but also their family members, the intended parents who employ surrogates, and the various professionals who work to facilitate the process. Seeking to understand how gestational surrogates perceive their vocation, she discovers that many regard surrogacy as a calling, but are reluctant to describe it as a job. In the process, Jacobson dissects the complex set of social attitudes underlying this resistance toward conceiving of pregnancy as a form of employment. Through her extensive field research, Jacobson gives readers a firsthand look at the many challenges faced by gestational surrogates, who deal with complicated medical procedures, delicate work-family balances, and tricky social dynamics. Yet Labor of Love also demonstrates the extent to which advances in reproductive technology are affecting all Americans, changing how we think about maternity, family, and the labor involved in giving birth.

Originally published in 1980, this new edition of More Than a Labour of Love is the first of our Women's Press Classics series, which celebrates our most enduring titles. Based on participant observation and in-depth interviews, this book describes the work women do in their homes, caring for children and partners, and maintaining the house. It shows how their lives are shaped by domestic responsibilities and challenges the ways in which their work is neither recognized nor valued. Arguing that the work they do is socially necessary and central to the economy, it calls for a transformation of current social and economic relations.

VINNIE REAM was a government postal worker and a teenage art prodigy who studied at the U.S. Capitol during the Civil War. She was able to model Abraham Lincoln prior to his assassination in 1865. In 1866, Congress wanted a statue of Lincoln and voted to give the young woman a chance to make the work. Vinnie became the first woman and the youngest artist to receive a U.S. Government commission for a statue. Her tragic true-to-life marble figure of Lincoln in the U.S. Capitol rotunda was unveiled in 1871. The work and its artist generated a storm of controversy. Vinnie Ream overcame a campaign of slander and courageously completed the statue despite many obstacles. This book is the true story of that dramatic struggle. It is an attempt to document the life and work of a famous, but forgotten, American woman sculptor. The information it contains came from hundreds of sources and is the end result of many years of study. The book shows the known art of Vinnie Ream in pictures and presents an inventory of her work for the first time. One purpose of this is to challenge the assumption that she was only an artist of "secondary importance". It is our hope that her true role in art history can be better determined by this detailed survey. Another purpose of this volume is to tell an accurate version of Vinnie Ream's life story. It attempts to transcend both the "Cinderella" and notorious elements written in the past by giving more original and more balanced information. Uncut speeches, debates, news stories and letters have been included where possible to let the characters speak for themselves. It is our hope that this book will stimulate more in-depth study of neglected artists and helpto hoist them out of the abyss of historical obscurity.

“Does anyone date anymore?” Today, the authorities tell us that courtship is in crisis. But when Moira Weigel dives into the history of sex and romance in modern America, she discovers that authorities have always said this. Ever since young men and women started to go out together, older generations have scolded them: That’s not the way to find true love. The first women who made dates with strangers were often arrested for prostitution; long before “hookup culture,” there were “petting parties”; before parents worried about cell phone apps, they fretted about joyrides and “parking.” Dating is always dying. But this does not mean that love is dead. It simply changes with the economy. Dating is, and always has been, tied to work. Lines like “I’ll pick you up at six” made sense at a time when people had jobs that started and ended at fixed hours. But in an age of contract work and flextime, many of us have become sexual freelancers, more likely to text a partner “u still up?” Weaving together over one hundred years of history with scenes from the contemporary landscape, Labor of Love offers a fresh feminist perspective on how we came to date the ways we do. This isn't a guide to “getting the guy.” There are no ridiculous “rules” to follow. Instead, Weigel helps us understand how looking for love shapes who we are—and hopefully leads us closer to the happy ending that dating promises.

The forces that shaped the institution of slavery in the American South endured, albeit in altered form, long after slavery was abolished. Toiling in sweltering Virginia tobacco factories or in the kitchens of white families in Chicago, black women felt a stultifying combination of racial discrimination and sexual prejudice. And yet, in their efforts to sustain family ties, they shared a common purpose with wives and mothers of all classes. In Labor of Love, Labor of Sorrow, historian Jacqueline Jones offers a powerful account of the changing role of black women, lending a voice to an unsung struggle from the depths of slavery to the ongoing fight for civil rights.

Thomas Beatie electrified the world in April 2008 with his announcement that he was seven months pregnant and due to give birth in July. The news made headlines across the globe, but it’s only one chapter in a fascinating saga. Labor of Love reveals Beatie’s unique life experiences: his less-than-idyllic childhood in Hawaii, his feelings of being a young man trapped in the body of a woman, his fight to conceive a child, and the obstacles surrounding the delivery. This astonishing narrative permits an intimate look at a family that refuses to let other people’s definitions of family deter them from creating one on their own terms. Labor of Love is much more than the story of a unique pregnancy and birth — it’s a beautiful and controversial love story about going against the tide, a powerful statement about the evolution of family and identity in the new millennium.

Pregancy and birth are a miracle. Labor of Love shares that miracle, as women share their personal stories of pregnancy, labor and birth. Unlike other birth story books which only focus on natural birthing, Labor of Love focuses on how different each labor and birth can be, even among the same women, and includes stories involving medical intervention, prematurity, and accidental homebirth, as well as natural births. Labor of Love is a heart-warming, poignant, humorous, eye-opening, and occasionally heart-breaking journey into the world of motherhood. A must have for any mother to be

There's a basic difference in the method of thinking we of today use as against that used a millennium or more ago. It's remarkably hard to spot - because we assume that, of course, everybody always thought this way, didn't they . . .
