In essays written over the course of multiple rounds of IVF and surrogacy, Kimball points out how most feminist thought dismisses or ignores the problems of infertility -- and who loses out when infertility is seen as an elite white women's condition. This version of reproductive choice, on the other hand, acknowledges that having the choice to bear a child is just as important as having the choice not to.

A stunning, intimate examination of lives led by black women during the early 20th century who dared to strive for more than white society allowed them to be. Between the stark history, beauty of the prose, and determination of the subjects, this book left me speechless.
