Encore Presentation of The Not-Mom Movement

Featured Audio

Nearly half of all women of childbearing age, according to a 2014 U.S. Census report, have never had children, the highest percentage since the census started tracking the state in the 1970s. In this encore presentation, we'll explore the realities, the stigma and the perceptions of women who never become mothers. Why do some feel compelled to make them justify their choice? That's happening on this edition of the Sound of Ideas.

Guests: 

Karen Malone Wright, Founder and Editor of TheNotMom.com

Melanie Notkin, New York based bestselling Author of “Otherhood

Connie Hill-Johnson - a local “not mom”

Dr. Marjorie Greenfield, Division Chief, General Obstetrics and Gynecology, UH Case Medical Center

Amy Blackstone, Professor and Chair, University of Maine’s Sociology Department
