Benn argues that there has been an unrecognised social revolution centering on experience of motherhood versus society's ideas of women's lives in the 90s. Whilst women are supposed to have it all there is a gap between women's experience of being mothers and societal perceptions of motherhood. Originally published in 1998 by Jonathan Cape.
