Of Woman Born: Motherhood as Experience and Institutionby Adrienne Rich
Synopses & Reviews
The experience is her own--as a woman, a poet, a feminist, and a mother--but it is an experience determined by the institution, imposed on all women everywhere. She draws on personal materials, history, research, and literature to create a document of universal importance.
Adrienne Rich's influential and landmark investigation concerns both the experience and the institution of motherhood.
'In order for all women to have real choices all along the line, ' Ardrienne Rich writes, 'we need fully to understand the power and powerlessness embodied in motherhood in patriarchal culture.'
Includes bibliographical references (p. -304).
