Example text

A sobering counter to the emphasis on displacement and mobility in recent theoretical work as well as in empirical studies lies in realizing that most women in the world remain trapped or fixed in place. Their everyday lives and social relations are confined within often tight spatial boundaries, constructed through power relations and material inequalities. The opportunities but also the constraints of the locality continue to structure many women’s, indeed most people’s, lives, when the material costs of overcoming the friction of distance are beyond their means.

In both symbolic and material terms, the child was closely associated with the future health and happiness of the nation. Mothering and child-rearing practices were increasingly monitored; women’s reproductive functions became a focus of medical intervention. Feminism, too, can be seen as a product of ‘Enlightenment’ thought. Mary Wollstonecraft’s Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792) was a response to both Paine’s The Rights of Man and Rousseau’s Émile and their concern with the education of male rather than female children.
