The book is focused on parenthood and generativity, considered by the authors not only as biological functions, but above all as human and socio-cultural capabilities able to overcome gender differences.Therefore, the authors reconsider motherhood, emphasizing the historical and social function of women; the accent on socio-cultural gender role of women as mothers and wives also inspires an undeniable reflection on male identities and fatherhood. The book insists that parenthood and care are human characteristics, and not only a specific female frame, and suggests to the reader a new focus on gender relationships, by adopting a gylanic perspective.
