Congratulations Louise SloanKnock Yourself Up is a positive feminist statement that finally demonstrates that women can make independent choices abouth their fertility without blaming men the way Leslie Cannold and others do. Sloan states:

Most of the women in this book would love to find the right guy but, when push came to shove, decided finding a husband just wasn’t their number one priority. Having a child was.

It is so refreshing to read about the ideas in this book, and the difference between it and the circumstances surrounding donor semen legislation in Australia I wrote about recently.
