Alice Walker, the champion of women's rights, has always argued that motherhood is a form of servitude. But one woman didn't buy in to Alice's beliefs - her daughter, Rebecca, 38, says the Daily Mail.
Here the young writer describes what it was like to grow up as the daughter of a cultural icon, and why she feels so blessed to be the sort of woman 64-year-old Alice despises - a mother.
That's just awesome. I look forward to reading the article.ReplyDelete
PS. I greatly disliked The Color Purple, both the movie and the book.

I am reminded of the verse, even if your mothers forget you in the womb, I will not.
I hope because of her coming out she finds women who are true "mothers" that give her comfort.
