Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pride and Joy: The Lives and Passions of Women Without Children is a collection of interviews with 25 women who have chosen not to have children. In lively stories and vivid voices, these diverse narrators talk proudly of their contributions to their communities, causes, and families, and they speak joyfully of intimate relationships with husbands and partners, of family and friends, work, volunteer and leisure activities, solitude, and connections with children. Their stories dispel the social myth that women must have children to be happy, and they debunk the stereotypes of childless women.

For the 20 percent of U.S. women who are currently childless by choice or by chance, Pride and Joy offers validation and community. For the millions of women deciding whether to have children, it provides inspiration. For parents, siblings, and friends of women who have chosen or may choose not to have children, it offers insight.

Book News Annotation:

Journalist Casey talks with 25 women from their middle 20s to middle 80s who have chosen not to have children. They talk about the contributions they make to their communities through their careers, causes, and families. They assure readers they are leading happy and satisfying lives and so can others, regardless of what traditionalists and moralists say. No index.
