Link: The evolution of mom

I was asked to write about how motherhood has changed over the past 100 years. I first tackled the topic by thinking of the main themes: technology, family structures, jobs, communities and the state of the country.

I read stories autobiographical stories on how mothering has changed and I reviewed statistical information collected by the Census and federal agencies. My main subjects were a mother, her mother and her grandmother who I found by contacting local moms organizations.
