Description: Veteran culture warrior and author of the bestselling Beauty Myth, Naomi Wolf debunks myths and defies expectations as she addresses the reality of contemporary maternity through her own experiences with passionate critique and unrelenting honesty.

Motherhood turned out to be Wolf's toughest fight of the gender wars. During her first pregancy, hormones eroded her independence, and ultrasound tested her commitment to abortion rights. The weeks after her daughter's birth taught her how inevitably society, employers, and even husbands, manipulate new mothers. In Misconceptions, Naomi Wolf demythologizes motherhood and stakes out feminist battle-grounds. She exposes the lack of compassion within the OB/GYN establishment; America's shockingly high rates of postpartum depression; the total inadequacy of a twelve-week, unpaid maternity leave. Misconceptions speaks to anyone connected -- personally, medically, or professionally -- to a new mother.
