“Feminist Prophecy: A Hypothetical Look into Gloria Anzaldúa’s ‘La Conciencia de la Mestiza: Towards a New Consciousness’ and Sara Ruddick’s ‘Maternal Thinking’ “, by Joshua Alma Enslen (University of Georgia)

Where it says:

Once the prophecy has created this space for the myth, the text can take on its socio-political organization. “Maternal Thinking” is a myth of supremacy, a supremacy that is supposedly born out of a socially constructed necessity to mother.
