In our society, we often assume that women will become mothers. But statistically, one in five American women will not have a biological child. In this powerful talk, Christen shares her decision not to have children, and argues that motherhood is an extension of womanhood, not the definition.

Christen's writing focuses on issues of social justice, fueled by her interest in sex-positivity, LGBTQI rights, and confronting racism, women’s issues, and mental health issues in America. Christen is also a spoken word artist, having performed in many venues and competitions across the country.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
