Blurb/Shorttext:
This book examines the critical role that women historically have played, and continue to play,in developing and sustaining rural communities. It explores the idea that subsistence labor in communities is done by women and becomes, therefore, an extension of the kind of work that they do as mothers because it focuses heavily on social programs which support the care and well- being of children, parents, and husbands.This motherwork style of community development greatly has enhanced the social fabric of communities throughout history as women have woven together threads of the young and old, against a backdrop of social justice and growth. Framed by commitment, this fabric has hung on the walls of communities for generations. This book will definintely strengthen the community development literature as well as invite further study.
