The mother must socialize her daughter to become subordinate to men, and if her daughter challenges patriarchal norms, the mother is likely to defend the patriarchal structures against her own daughters.
A Mother who radiates self-love and self-acceptance actually VACCINATES her daughter against low self-esteem.
I love you still, Against my will.
To a father growing old nothing is dearer than a daughter.
Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children.
William Makepeace Thackeray
