I’m not a mother. I am not a baby person, so to speak, but this book’s title caught my attention. A Uterus Is A Feature Not A Bug talks about women’s struggles to be taken seriously in the working world, after having had children. The author, Sarah Lacy, is a no hold’s bared journalist who doesn’t mince her words. There are a few well placed flowery words to emphasize certain parts.

Sarah covers topics ranging from working as a new mom, working as a single parent and the stigma that divorce brings into the workplace. Another important topic she tackles is the traditional view that a woman must strictly stay at home with the kids is. With women being able to work outside the home it’s helping their partner/spouse financially and giving the other person more parental responsibilities with the kids. Women today can survive without having to be married. I think that scares the crap out of a lot of men because then women’s needy dependence on men lowers. Sarah goes over how nontraditional families are possible and do function quite smoothly. Also, you don’t have to be married to choose to have kids, or to have a healthy family relationship.

I received my free ARC of A Uterus Is A Feature Not A Bug by Sarah Lacy from TLC Book Tours in exchange for my honest assessment. Even if you aren’t a mother this book will change your life. There are so many topics I didn’t think about in depth much till I read this book. Men should read this book as well. This book empowers women to be all they can be wether married, single, or divorced. Cultural labels don’t have to define your life. You can move beyond the stigmas and grow as a woman.

  1. I am a working mother so while Lacy’s words read true to me, I was very curious how the book would come across to those who aren’t mothers. I agree with Heather above; it seems Lacy’s book speaks to so many of us in its own way! Enjoyed your review.
