Of Woman Born: Motherhood as Experience and Institution
The experience is her ownóas a woman, a poet, a feminist, and a motheróbut it is an experience determined by the institution, imposed on all women everywhere. She draws on personal materials, history, research, and literature to create a document of universal importance.
