With child / Phyllis Chesler interviewed by Anita Frankel

Program Title:
With child / Phyllis Chesler interviewed by Anita Frankel
PRA Archive #: 

Phyllis Chesler, feminist and author of "Woman and madness," "Women, money, and power," and "About men," speaks with Anita Frankel of KPFK about her new book "With child: a diary of motherhood" (Crowell, 1979), a record of pregnancy and childbirth which is as much about the birth of a mother as it is about the birth of a child. The narrative includes all the problems and the poetry of an active, professional woman experiencing childbearing -- the aloneness, the joy, the relationship with her husband who promises to "mother" the child equally, the problems of childcare, and more.
