“When reason sets itself against a body that is epitomized by birthing labor, the relationship of birth stands outside speech. Bodily beginnings and some women’s participation in them stand for all that reason is not. When birth figures in reason’s story only as an absence, the birthing woman is silent.”

— Sara Ruddick, in Maternal Thinking: Towards a Politics of Peace, 1989
