Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Bodies are a source of anxiety, pleasure, and pain. Prescribed Norms tells us just what this has meant for North American women over the past 200 years. No one but Cheryl Krasnick Warsh could be so compelling in explaining why girls and women of every age and in every community in Canada and the United States should have the power to control their own bodies. We owe her a debt of thanks. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
In her meticulously researched history, Cheryl Krasnick Warsh challenges readers to rethink the norms of women's health and treatment in Canada and the United States since 1800. Prescribed Norms details a disturbing socio-medical history that limits and discounts women's own knowledge of their bodies and their health.
By comparing ritual practices of various cultures, Prescribed Norms demonstrates how looking at women's health through a masculine lens has distorted current medical understandings of menstruation, menopause, and childbirth, and has often led to faulty medical conclusions. Warsh also illuminates how the shift from informal to more formal, institutionalized treatment impacts both women's health care and women's roles as health practitioners.
Always accessible and occasionally irreverent, Warsh's narrative provides readers with multiple foundations for reconsidering women's health and women's health care.
Über den Autor: Cheryl Krasnick Warsh is Professor of History at Vancouver Island University and Editor-in-Chief of the Canadian Bulletin of Medical History / Bulletin canadien d'histoire de la medecine.
