Rosa, a Kyrgyz woman in her thirties, describes how her schoolteacher mother managed to raise 12 children, details the government's assistance, the fact that several brothers and sisters, including herself, are college graduates, and answers the typically American question of William Mandel and his wife Tania about whether so many kids don't make a woman a brood-sow and don't adversely affect her heath. The following week, Mandel broadcast the continuation of the interview with this woman, which can be found in AZ0356.
Previously titled "Soviet woman interviewed by William Mandel."
