In Memory of Sara Ruddick
Sara Ruddick–philosopher, writer, peace activist, mothering theorist and legend–has died.
Ruddick, a professor of philosophy and women’s studies for nearly 40 years at the New School for Social Research, developed an approach to child-rearing that shifted the focus away from motherhood as a social institution or biological imperative and toward the day-to-day activities of raising and educating a child. She will be remembered for her book, Maternal Thinking: Toward A Politics of Peace, first published in 1989.
