The Seed: Infertility Is a Feminist Issue
Alexandra Kimball, Coach House Books
A few years back, Alexandra Kimball’s powerful essay about her mid-30s miscarriage challenged mainstream feminism to deal differently with infertility. Ever since, we’ve been waiting eagerly for her book-length treatment on the subject. Now the award-winning journalist delivers. From the 15th-century witch trials of barren women to portraits in contemporary literature, Alexandra Kimball’s debut is a bold look at how, and why, the women’s movement has left infertile women out in the cold.
