  1. Damien W. Riggs & Clemence Due (2012). Representations of Surrogacy in Submissions to a Parliamentary Inquiry in New South Wales. Techné: Research in Philosophy and Technology 16 (1):71-84.
    Whilst feminist commentators have long critiqued surrogacy as a practice of commodification, surrogacy as a mode of family formation continues to grow in popularity. In this paper we explore public representations of surrogacy through a discourse analytic reading of submissions made in Australia to an Inquiry regarding surrogacy legislation. The findings suggest that many submissions relied upon normative understandings of surrogates as either ‘good women’ or ‘bad mothers’. This is of concern given that such public representations may shape the views (...)
