One of my favorite bloggers recently wrote about The Girls Who Went Away... and she even highlighted the same quote as I did.

Bitch PhD

I've seen other people talk about adoption as a feminist issue, which I think is interesting. And I think the way the author paints the 1950s, Ward Clever-eque existence as a social abnormality is pretty cool too. There is so much pressure on parents, especially moms, to hold up the standard of the 50s family that I think it's extremely helpful to realize that the 50s and 60s were really more the exception than the rule.
