Product description

Review

“[A] scathing, controversial and brilliant piece of writing. . . . An essential read, whether or not you plan to have a child.” — EDMONTON JOURNAL

“Ms. Badinter’s polemic is sardonic, urgent and gripping. Sometimes it may sound as if she is advising mothers not even to consider breastfeeding, or encouraging pregnant women to smoke and drink. But she is only trying to re-dress the balance: this is a cry for freedom.” —THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

“A sharp, engaging and iconoclastic writer, Badinter nimbly traces the forces that have combined to glorify maternal sacrifice.” — MACLEAN’S

“One of those rare books with the power to change the way we look at our world and change the choices we make.” — THE GLOBE AND MAIL

“Provocative and rigorous. . . . Badinter’s impressive imperative to own one’s own life, to take rigorous and energetic responsibility, to cast off the silly or cowardly or frivolously domestic ways, seems very appealing, and refreshing and brisk.” — SLATE

--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

ELISABETH BADINTER is the acclaimed author of three seminal works on feminism (The Myth of Motherhood, Dead End Feminism and XY: On Masculine Identity), which have been translated into fifteen languages. She lives in Paris, where she teaches philosophy at the prestigious École Polytechnique.
