first, adrienne rich revised to support religious feel-good late in life motherhood, ooh it must be ok because I didn't get knocked up when I was 20, only when I was 40, but now, in the NYT
But here's what I think really bothers Flanagan's critics: No matter how vociferously they disagree with her on some things, they find themselves agreeing with much of what she writes. ..

NO maybe time spent with children does not oppose time spent working, especially IF the lucky person can manage a job worth doing
