1. SOUNDBITE (English) Keira Knightley, actress, on response to childbirth essay:
"Um, am I surprised? No, I'm not particularly surprised. I think that certain aspects of the media have misrepresented – I hope not purposefully, because that would be extraordinary, wouldn't it? – my entire meaning of the entire essay. That essay is about childbirth, it's about motherhood and it's about complete empathy with every other woman that has been through the extremity of labor. It's also about my sudden realization that what our culture asks us to do is to hide our truths and to silence our experiences. So it is exactly the opposite of what certain media has reported it to be. And I think that just shows as far as the feminist movement goes, we have a long way to go. And it can be seen actually – that's with the essay is about – and it can be seen in the reporting of it."
