Non-Fiction [Nov. 7th, 2004|06:09 pm]


Title: The Childless Revolution
Author: Madelyn Cain
Genre: Non-fiction/Womne's Issues/Psychology
Rating: 3/5

Cain, who has a 15 yr old daughter, examines and interviews women who are Childfree (do not wish to have children), those who are Childless (can not have children) and those who are Childless by Happenstance (waited too long). She looks at history, technological advances in medicine and sociology for why a growing number of women choose not to have children and how essentially, they are discrimnated for it.

This is a must read not only for women, but for men as well to understand all your reproductive possibilities, even not reproducing. The taboo topic of the 21st century.

(I gave it 3 out of 5 because there are some minor ideas I didn't agree with the author)
