About this title
From the practical demands of having children to the change of identity it brings, this volume addresses woman's experience of motherhood. It addresses the need for "a room of one's own," the difficulty in balancing a career with the demands of child-rearing, postnatal depression, the "ideal" of motherhood, holding on to one's sense of self, choosing not to have children, giving birth, and the empty nest. Contributors include Alice Walker, Sue Woolfe, Adrienne Rich, Jacqueline Morreau, Sharon Olds, and Louise Erdich.From the Publisher:
From the practical demands of having children, to the change of identity it brings, this collection of essays by noted writers and artists speaks to women’s experience of motherhood: the need for “a room of one’s own,” the difficulty in balancing a career with the demands of child–rearing, postnatal depression, the “ideal” of motherhood, holding on to one’s sense of self, and choosing not to have children. Vivid and inspiring, this anthology forms an intimate portrait of women’s shared experience and opens a window onto the creative mind.
