Mother-daughter Relationships: A Feminist Overview

Auther : Nora F. Al-Mosaed

 

Many Feminists theorizing literature argue that shared gender is the basis for solidarity and common interest, while different gender is the basis for division of interest and ideological dissonance. It follows that women, regardless of their age, class, colour, and race, have a common experience of oppression. Women experience significant variation in their situation in those wider areas of political, economic and social subordination and inequality which are not confined to the social relations of gender. Furthermore, some women benefit either directly or indirectly from the exploitation of other women. The study was conducted on 173 samples from female students in King Abdul-Aziz University in Jeddah. Thirty-five questions were distributed. The main results of the study indicated good relations with the mother are oppositely related with the age difference between the mothers and the daughters. Other results proved that the married daughters had a better relation with the mothers than the unmarried ones. On the other hand, divorced daughters do not enjoy good relations with their mothers. Moreover, there is no connection between the existence of male brothers in the families and gender discrimination, i.e. male favoring remains the common type of upbringing in the Saudi family.

Keywords: Women oppressing other women, Family relations, New-wave Feminism, Mother-daughter relationship, The Saudi family, Socialization in the Saudi family.
