Abstract:Through the scope of women's determination toward their leisure, women's shopping, as a fundamental activity in women's everyday life, successfully represents the importance of this "choice among no choice" situation of mothers, in relation to the multiple functions and varied enjoyments shopping carries in the public sphere that has been engendered by women themselves. Mothers' daily consumption, long ignored in leisure literature, can combine with the notion of leisure and can be proved as important and significant in women's daily life.
