    1. A well researched look at attitudes towards childbirth, motherhood and fertility across many cultures Raises an awful lot of questions about how socially constructed these attitudes and s are A really thought provoking and insightful book, if it is controversial at times it only highlights how unsettled some of our conventional wisdom on this topic really is.One of Greer s incisive and to the point books, quite easy to read.

    2. Second wave feminism was to a huge extent based on the idea women are better than men, because they have babies and babies are important Most of the real life feminists I talk to nowadays deny that sort of biological stuff matters.

    3. I picked this up from the library with good intentions to read it an educate myself about feminism and sexual politics and all that gubbins Because I was only seventeen I didn t read all of this and almost certainly didn t understand all of it , but what I did read was very interesting indeed Some of what Greer says seems overly controversial asking for argument but a lot of it made a lot of sense from comment on Western attitudes to children, to the shackles that fertility puts on male and fema [...]

    4. Re read this after reading in August 2011 Excellent intelligent insight into childbirth motherhood and the comparisons across cultures As stated in the introduction it is not bossy in that it is not telling you to think a certain way, there are no generalized opinions or bias points of view, it s just intelligent, mature and informative as it should be highlighted many interesting lines

    5. I don t usually consider myself a feminist other than believing that women should have equal rights , but this books is very persuasive mostly since it is so well written Some of the points she brings up are depressing so, because they are true.
