Heavy Mental

Women and Madness: Revised and Updated by Phyllis Chesler

Reviewed by Andi Zeisler
Bitch Magazine

"'What has really changed since I wrote this book?' asks Phyllis Chesler in the introduction to the latest edition of her groundbreaking, controversial, and still-vital work on women and mental health. 'The answer is too little — and quite a lot.'
