ONE The Supreme Court of Canada and What It Means to Be “Of Woman Born” DIANA GINN INTRODUCT ION IN HER LITERARY CRITICISM, Adrienne Rich speaks of the need to “re-vision” literature, a term that she defines as “the act of looking back, of seeing with fresh eyes, of entering an old text from a new critical direction” (“When We Dead,” 167). In Of Woman Born, Rich attempts to see motherhood with new eyes, distinguishing between the “potential relationship” (13) that she envisions existing between mother and child, free of oppressive social constraints, and the socially created institution of motherhood that, in Rich’s view, allows a patriarchal society to control women as they bear and raise children.
