Complaints and Disorders: The Sexual Politics of Sickness

£8.99

Product Information

From prescribing the "rest cure" to diagnosing hysteria, the medical profession has consistently treated women as weak and pathological. Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English’s concise history of the sexual politics of medical practices shows how the biomedical rationale was used to justify sex discrimination throughout the culture, and how its vestiges are evident in abortion policy and other reproductive rightsstruggles today.

Authors: Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English, with an introduction by Susan Faludi.

Published by The Feminist Press.
