Complaints and Disorders: The Sexual Politics of Sickness

by Barbara Ehrenreich & Deirdre English, introduction by Susan Faludi - £8.99  Feminist Press (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781558616950 | ISBN 10: 1558616950

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 rights struggles today.
