Jody Day believes that “childlessness is the unfinished business of feminism”
Author and social entrepreneur Jody Day is often called “the voice of the childless generation”. She finally abandoned her dreams of motherhood in her mid-40s after a 15-year struggle with infertility. The grief and social isolation that she suffered as a result of her childlessness gave her the inspiration to found Gateway Women, an organisation that supports, inspires and empowers childless-by-circumstance women in the UK. Her first book, Rocking the Life Unexpected: 12 Weeks to Your Plan B for a Meaningful and Fulfiling Life Without Children, was published last September.
