Although in recent years substantial attention has been devoted to both transracial and international adoption, there has been comparatively little discussion of how adoption, and more specifically, how transracial and international adoption might be analyzed from a feminist perspective. It seems clear, however, that transracial and international adoption raise many issues that should be of interest to feminist scholars and others whose work concerns issues such as poverty, the economic status of women, the nature of mothering, and the relationships between women of different classes, races, and nations.
