“It was all about my career.” And god forbid a woman is successful and doesn’t have a child,” she said. “And the reason my husband left me, why we separated and ended our marriage, was because I didn’t want to give him a child. They were outright lies. “I have nothing to hide at this point.”

The world creates narratives that aren’t true, so I might as well be telling the truth. It feels like I’m waking up from hibernation. I have nothing to hide.’
