This conversation between the renowned feminist psychiatrist, psychoanalytic psychotherapist and group analyst, Estela Welldon, and Sigal Spigel, is the second in a series of planned intergenerational conversations between what are usually termed second-wave feminists and what could be referred to as the ‘daughters’ of this generation. These conversations aim to elucidate what we see as inherent tensions in all articulations of the maternal - tensions, however that manifest themselves in particular ways in intergenerational contexts. As we have argued elsewhere, these dialogues offer opportunities for the ongoing work of tracing and creating maternal genealogies through the active consideration of cultural psychosocial constructions of the maternal as they become apparent within historical/generational and biographical contexts.
