This week, Olivia is joined by bestselling author Sophie Mackintosh to discuss motherhood.
Sophie’s debut novel, The Water Cure, was longlisted for The Booker Prize last year and earned her comparisons to Margaret Atwood thanks to its feminist dystopian themes. Her latest book, Blue Ticket, explores the thorny subject of motherhood.
Why do some women choose to be mothers, and others choose not to be? And what happens when that choice is taken away from you?
The pair discuss this alongside the reasons why we associate motherhood with femininity, why abortion remains a taboo subject, and the sexism surrounding contraception.
