Abstract

This book explores the significance of sister relationships in women's lives. It documents sistering experiences through narratives of growing up, caring for the family, leaving home, and becoming a mother. Drawing parallels between sistering and caring, the book presents new material on a widespread yet invisible aspect of the social construction of femininity.
