Joint project with wichi mothers
Through the story of Hannah I raise a question about the meaning of motherhood for me.
I understand that in biblical times concepts of life were very different , I like to say that today, as a woman of the 21st century, and post-Freud, I believe that Hannah is very far from my own maternal feeling.
I do not think that the possibility of conceiving a child is enough to turn a woman into a mother. I rather think that in Hannah was stronger her narcissistic desire to fulfill her wish of conception , thus she devoted her child to the temple before he was born.
I feel that the daily care and freedom of choice offered to a child, is the biggest maternal challenge.
