Activism for family leave legislation directly engages women in attempts to resolve the opposition of motherhood and wage labor and reveals an ongoing negotiation of the meaning and boundaries of nurturance in American culture. While the national effort was rooted in the equality versus difference debate in feminism, local activists reframed discussion in terms of compelling social needs, and they found that conflicting definitions of the family threatened coalition unity.
