A call to action from award-winning author, unique because it is sounded by a mother of 3 with 30+ years perspective. 50 years after the 2nd Women's Movement, it's time to free females from the assumption that motherhood is the ultimate expression of womanhood. It is a meaningful path--and there are many more! Women have been redefining the female experience for centuries, but their voices keep vanishing. Following the footsteps of Kate Chopin, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Tillie Olsen, Madelyn Cain and other mothers who have written about the realities of women's lives, Holmes endeavors to shine a 21st century bright light on this topic and encourage everyone to dispense with outdated scripts that refer to motherhood as a foregone conclusion rather than one path of many that leads to a meaningful life. There are many aspects of love and definitions of "family." Join Holmes in her quest to change the way we view women's lives.
