If only I'd known: Motherhood is an identity holocaust
Roni Halpern loves her children but is not sure she would have had them if she'd known then what she knows now and has written about in her new book, 'Body and its Discontents.'
Roni Halpern is 51 and she has two children. She got married at the age of 18, and gave birth to her first child when she was 20. These are not exactly the specs of a classical feminist biography. Ten years ago she separated from her husband, after 23 years of marriage, and left home for another woman and for love of women. She believes that everything is political and that certainly the body is.
