Gateway Women - Childless Women Unite!
on 20 September 2013
For all us childless women who are seeking to find where we fit in a culture that in respect of women is very much focused on the status and aspirations of being a mother, and which very much ties a woman's identity to motherhood.
The book discusses the change in society which we are a part of, the significant increase in the number of childless women (whether by choice or circumstance), and provides practical advice and guidance on how we, this new and growing group of women, can empower ourselves and create our own place in culture, our own meaning and self worth that is not tied to motherhood.
And for those of us struggling with the emotional impact and fallout of accepting, or beginning to accept, that they will never be a mother, that they are a woman who is childless by circumstance (rather than by choice), the book offers guidance to assist you to understand what you are feeling, and why, and how to work through this. That this book exists is a comfort in itself - to know that what you are feeling is normal and you are not alone. Thank you Jody.
