Deconstructing the Supermom Myth Mamas, protect yourself from the supermom
stereotype by learning how to recognize it. If you are passing the time in the
grocery checkout line by casually flipping through women's magazines, be
cognizant of the fact that you are subjecting yourself to advertising and images
geared specifically towards women. Start counting how many ads show a woman
with a cleaning product for sale. Pick up a men's magazine instead. (You may

... both a career and a home to manage. There are multiple contradictions
inherent in the oppositional claims of the 'good mother' and the 'yummy mummy'
that are supposedly reconciled in the figure of the 'supermom'. Balancing
mothering and a career is not easy, but masking the struggle is a requisite for
performing the supermom. The supermom myth perpetuates the “mask of
motherhood”: the unattainable media images of seamless perfection that makes
mothers respond through ...

also separates ...

Roseanne, in particular, mooned romantic notions of motherhood week-in and
week-out, as did Married with Children, Grace Under Fire, and The Simpsons.
Shows that made fun of the "perfect mom" ideal, and news accounts and
entertainment programming that suggested that mom couldn't do it all, so might
as well go back to the kitchen, both served to eradicate the "supermom" as an
icon. The "supermom" — a media construction — was not what feminists had
hoped for as a model.

And we read about them in the news—power moms who have accomplished the
elusive balancing act between work and motherhood, including Cynthia Carroll,
CEO of the mining company Anglo American PCL, who fielded work calls while
she was in labor. Yet, the super mom isn't regarded as a super hero. For mothers,
perfection is the expectation, not the exception. The supermom myth has some
roots in 19thcentury media, as the U.S. economy moved from agrarian to
industrial, ...

In an article entitled “A Close Look at Labor Statistics Bursts the Supermom Myth,
” journalist Deborah Churchman discovered that official government statistics
often quoted in the news failed to represent the part-time worker. In 1985, 62
percent of American mothers with children under eighteen were reported to be “in
the work force.” And yet, underlying the loud reporting of this statistic lay the fact
that only 41 percent of mothers worked full time. Churchman discovered the

Rejecting what they term the “diaper commercial” version of the Supermom myth,
these publications offer affirmation and practical advice to young mothers in
particular. The third wave feminist perspective embodied in these forms also
allows for an examination of media representations of marginalized mothering
groups, such as young women, women of color, lesbians, and poor women.
Feminist theory dominates critical understandings of motherhood in media
representation.
