Matremoir is a portmanteau word which combines mater and memoir to describe personal poems, essays, graphic narratives, books and films about the mother.[1] Coined by Andre Gerard,[citation needed] the word calls attention to the rapidly growing body of personal, often critical, responses to mothers.
