“every woman is a daughter…”

A Multimedia Storytelling of My Trip around the Country with My Mom to Interview Other Mother-Daughter Duos

(All Daughter Project Posts)

The mother-daughter relationship plays an integral role in every woman’s life. This relationship, or lack of it, helps to determine how women view themselves as women. Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of Mother-Daughter Wisdom, writes, “Though I acknowledge that the culture at large plays a significant role in our views of ourselves as women, ultimately the beliefs and behavior of our individual mothers exert a far stronger influence.”

I believe every woman has a story (or two) about her mother, or a mother-like figure, that describes how the relationship has shaped her life for the better and/or worse. I want to help you share these stories.

I’ll post new stories and research on mother-daughter relationships weekly. If you have stories you’d like to share, please post them in the comments section of any of my Daughter Project blog posts or contact me by e-mail. I look forward to hearing your stories!
