Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An unprecedented and definitive collection of rabble-rousing writings on women’s health, Voices of the Women’s Health Movement explores a range of provocative topics from reproductive rights to sexuality to motherhood. Trail-blazing advocate Barbara Seaman and health activist Laura Eldridge bring the revolutionary ideas of several generations together in this powerful new book celebrating women’s bodies, and women’s voices. The more than two hundred contributors include Jennifer Baumgardner, Susan Brownmiller, Phyllis Chesler, Angela Y. Davis, Barbara Ehrenreich, Germaine Greer, Shulamith Firestone, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Erica Jong, Molly Haskell, Shere Hite, Susie Orbach, Judith Rossner, Alix Kates Shulman, Gloria Steinem, Sojourner Truth, Rebecca Walker, Naomi Wolf, and many others. With Voices of the Women’s Health Movement, for the first time, every woman and girl can experience in one place the powerful history of stirring words and strong female perspectives that have inspired countless women to take control of their health and their lives.

 

Volume Two highlights include influential writings on sex, rape and violence against women, body image, informed consent, self-help gynecology, patient advocacy, and the mind-body connection.

About the Author

Women’s health advocate and science journalist BARBARA SEAMAN (1935-2008) is best known for her tireless patient advocacy work, which brought about the first warning label on a prescription drug (the birth control pill), and eventually  lead her to co-found the National Woman’s Health Network, which continues to protect women’s rights today. Her first book, The Doctors’ Case Against the Pill (1969), prompted senate hearings, exposed the biases of the medical establishment regarding women’s health issues, and inspired women around the world to take control of their health. Through her many books, countless articles, and how she personally encouraged so many writers, publishers, and activists of all ages, Seaman devoted her life to advocating for women’s rights regarding their health.

Co-editor LAURA ELDRIDGE is a women’s health writer and activist. She is the author of In Our Control: The Complete Guide to Contraceptive Choices for Women and the co-author of The No-Nonsense Guide to Menopause.
