I think that this is going to be difficult to answer unless a specific text is identified.  In order to craft a meaningful thesis which addresses a Feminist Perspective on motherhood, one has to be able to apply such concepts to a specific text or a set of texts and examine what is presented and how the theory would view it.  At the same time, I also think that there might have to be some level of clarification in terms of the feminist perspective, in general.  There might be different approaches from a feminist paradigm about motherhood.  Some thinkers might argue that if a woman makes a conscious choice to enter motherhood, it is not as oppressive than a social condition that makes women have to embrace it.  I think that being able to specify works that will serve as a test case as well as specific feminist thinkers' views on motherhood will be helpful.  In the end, I think that being able to offer some level of exactitude in terms of works and thinkers will prove helpful to you here.
