Andrea O'Reilly Ph.D. (born 1961) is a writer on women's issues and currently a Professor in the School of Women's Studies at York University in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Work[edit]

O'Reilly founded the Association for Research on Mothering (ARM) at York University in 1998 and ran it until it closed in 2010.[1] Its disbandment led to the inception of a new organization, the Motherhood Initiative for Research and Community Involvement (MIRCI).[2] She is founder and editor-in-chief of the Journal of the Association for Research on Mothering, now the Journal of the Motherhood Initiative for Research and Community Involvement.[2] In 2006, as director of ARM, she founded Demeter Press, the first feminist press on motherhood. As well, she is founder of the feminist mothers group "Mother Outlaws".[3]

She is also the author and editor of eighteen books on motherhood.[4]
