Pragya Agarwal, A Woman's Choice

Pragya Agarwal, A Woman's Choice


A ground-breaking intersectional exploration of fertility and feminism

Dr Pragya Agarwal is a behavioural and data scientist, and a passionate campaigner for racial and gender equality. With (M)otherhood, she tells the honest truth about her personal story, and draws on scientific research, to present an intersectional look at fertility choices, taking in factors such as education, economics, feminism and race. She examines why, in a world where women have more choices than ever, society continues to define women by the standards of less enlightened times.

Dr Agarwal founded the research think tank The 50 Percent Project. She writes regularly for the Guardian, Prospect, Forbes, and New Scientist. In 2018 she won the Diverse Wisdom Writing Award from Hay House Publishing, and was named one of the 100 influential women in social enterprise in the UK. She is the author of Sway: Unravelling Unconscious Bias.
