In a world where women have more choices than ever, society nevertheless continues to exert the stigma and pressures of less enlightened times when it comes to childbirth, defining women by whether they embrace or reject motherhood, and whether they can have children or not.

Dr Pragya Agarwal uses her own varied experiences and choices around motherhood to examine the broader societal and scientific factors that drive how we think and talk about this issue - including education, economic status, feminism, race and more.

Extremely open in its honesty and meticulously researched, (M)otherhood makes a powerful argument for the need to tackle society's obsession with women's bodies and fertility - and urgently.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Sway: Agarwal's diagnosis of the political harms of bias is passionate and urgent * * Guardian, Book of the Week * *
An important look at one of the issues facing Western society today. This book exposes the insidiousness of unconscious bias and offers us a way to change the way we think that is practical, useful, readable and essential for the times we are living in. You need to read this book and think about the way you live and how you view others -- NIKESH SHUKLA
An exhaustive, brilliantly researched survey of bias and how it seeps so easily into our everyday thoughts and actions, from gender essentialism to casual racism. Calmly and without polemic, Agarwal explains why we all need to work harder to avoid lazy prejudice and simplistic narratives if we are to build a fairer society. An eye-opening book that I hope will be widely read -- ANGELA SAINI
Indispensable . . . A book that is challenging, fascinating and useful, and if we take notice, a book that could make us better people -- ROBIN INCE
