The Wise Wound: Menstruation and Everywoman

The Wise Wound: Menstruation and Everywoman Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“The first accessible book about menstruation as a human reality . . . entirely praiseworthy.”—The Sunday Times

This is a book of many questions and some answers. What is this menstruation that half the world undergoes? Has it any use, or any purpose? Which is it, blessing or curse?

This groundbreaking study of the facts, fantasies, and taboos surrounding menstruation has helped bring about a profound shift in attitudes toward a natural phenomenon that has been reviled and denigrated over the centuries. Thoroughly researched yet highly readable, combining psychology, anthropology, and poetry, Shuttle and Redgrove illustrate their theories using examples ranging from the Bible to such modern-day pop horrors as vampire movies and the cult film The Exorcist.

Synopsis:

"Answers many of the questions that one had never thought or dared to ask."--Margaret Drabble
