To be or not to be : the meaning of maternity / Dorothy Lee (Episode 5 of 15)
PRA Archive #: 

Dorothy D. Lee, Ph.D., Visiting Professor in Psychology at Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, PA, delivers a talk on the psychological pressures for women to become mothers at The Challenge to Women: The Biological Avalanche conference held in San Francisco on January 23, 1965. She defines maternity as a relationship, describes the two ends of motherhood - to be a mother and to bring a child to life - and says that the woman is expected to give of herself for the enrichment of her child, and so must be a fully-formed person before giving birth.
