Creating a Life: Professional Women and the Quest for Children - new book

ISBN: 9780786867660

Baby Hunger centers on some explosive new data. A nationwide survey, undertaken specifically for this book, shows that 40% of women earning $50,000 or more a year are childless at age 45. These women have not chosen to be childless. As becomes clear from the true stories that thread through this book, the vast majority yearn for children. Indeed many have gone to extraordinary lengths to find a baby, expending great amounts of time, energy, and money, while often derailing their careers. So why is the age-old business of having babies so very elusive for this generation of high-achieving women? Why is it that all the new power and prestige does not translate into easier choices on the family front? It seems that women can be astronauts, CEOs, Secretaries of State, but increasingly, they cannot be mothers. Sylvia Ann Hewlett's powerful book looks at the hard and disturbing facts and goes on to advocate a new way of approaching the question of motherhood vs. career for a new generation of women. The result is essential reading.

A discussion of the experience of forty- and forty-plus aged women who are in professional careers but single and-or childless, their desire to have children but struggling against their biological clocks - and how so many wind up childless after all, and single, and unhappy, due to their own choices and patterns of behavior.
