(M)otherhood: On the choices of being a woman

Dr Pragya Agarwal

June 3 @ 12:00 am

In a world where women have more choices than ever, society nevertheless continues to exert the stigma and pressures of less enlightened times when it comes to childbirth, defining women by whether they embrace or reject motherhood, and whether they can have children or not.

Dr Pragya Agarwal uses her own varied experiences and choices around motherhood to examine the broader societal and scientific factors that drive how we think and talk about this issue – including education, economic status, feminism, race and more.

Extremely open in its honesty and meticulously researched, (M)otherhood makes a powerful argument for the need to tackle society’s obsession with women’s bodies and fertility – and urgently.
