Amanda Montei presents Touched Out: Motherhood, Misogyny, Consent, and Control
In conversation with Holly Whitaker
When Amanda Montei became a parent, she struggled with the physicality of caring for children, but even more with the growing lack of autonomy she felt in her personal and professional life. In American society, women are expected to prioritize their children, often by pushing their bodies to the limit and ignoring their own desires and needs. In this blend of memoir and cultural critique, Touched Out: Motherhood, Misogyny, Consent, and Control draws connections between caregiving, consent, reproductive control, and the sacrifices women are expected to make throughout their lives. In conversation with Holly Whitaker (Quit Like a Woman), please join us in Fort Greene for what is sure to be a night of thought-provoking conversation on what it really means to care in America.
