My Darling Mother: An Examination of a Mother-Daughter Relationship
MetadataShow full item record
Based on research undertaken in 2005, Dr. Cathy Cavanaugh, Assoc. Prof, Women’s Studies, Centre for Work & Community Studies, explores the relationship between Gladys Arnold, the only accredited Canadian Press journalist in Paris when France fell to German occupation, and her mother, Florida Mae Arnold Sutcliffe. Drawing on correspondence spanning more than 40 years, the research examines the bonds of affection between these two women, family tensions, and the important mother-daughter role that encouraged Gladys' efforts to establish herself as a journalist reporting from Europe between 1935 and 1940.
