Why Do Women Panic When Their Biological Clock Ticks?
February 16, 2016
Hosted by Dr. Carole Lieberman
As dating, courtship and marriage rituals are increasingly threatened by the online matching trends that provide a Mr. or Ms. Right-Now, more women are surprised by the sudden loud ticking of their biological clock. Indeed, biology and society have created a mandate that to be fulfilled, a woman must procreate. Today's guest, Melanie Holmes, challenges this. She's the author of the award-winning book, The Female Assumption: A Mother's Story, Freeing Women from the View that Motherhood is a Mandate. She explores the assumption that every woman wants to, should, or will be able to become a mother... and looks at the other options a woman has to be fulfilled. Perhaps the ticking clock means you need to overcome your fear of intimacy and find a good man to start a family with, or perhaps it means the time has come for some other path. Today's show will help men and women decide what's right for them.
