Director Therese Shechter is clearly not the best wife.
In our society, it's assumed all women want children. Nothing could be more obvious. Or is it? This in-progress documentary explores this long-standing assumption about women, our bodies, and our choices. Through personal stories, pop culture, history, politics and science, My So-Called Selfish Life questions this most essential of female identities, and challenges a cultural narrative of motherhood so enmeshed in the fabric of society, we're not even aware of its power over our lives.
