Thanks for such an honest piece. Those of us working at the intersection of motherhood and feminism are out here, just not as mainstream as we would like. I too was shocked at how much I wanted to spend more time with my daughter than the high powered job I thought I would have allowed. And you certainly won't find discussion of that by Hirschman or Bennetts. A great book on this is Maternal Desire by Daphne de Marneffe. I explore it in my own book too This is Not How I Thought It Would Be. There are some amazing thinkers and writers in this space, we just sometimes have to hunt to find each other. Glad I found you!
