TC Fall Book Talk Series: Women Without Kids, Ruby Warrington
Come to a new TC Fall Book Talk Series that explores the reproductive lifespan trajectory with a focus on reproductive identity and the process of becoming a mother, known as “matrescence.”
Yet, what about not becoming a mother; how women bond; and why childless women encourage a new perspective on womanhood? We will explore this in our first conversation with Ruby Warrington on her book Women Without Kids: The Revolutionary Rise of an Unsung Sisterhood (Sounds True, 2023).
Date: Tuesday, September 19th
Time: 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Location: Russell 306 or Zoom
Details: FREE + Open to All
Hosted by Khora, the Maternal & Reproductive Psychology Lab at Teachers College, Columbia University in collaboration with TC’s Gottesman Libraries. Dr. Aurélie Athan a reproductive psychologist and Research Professor in the Department of Counseling & Clinical Psychology at Teachers College who specializes in reproductive identity, the reproductive mind, and the developmental transition to motherhood, will moderate.
