Sexy But Psycho : How the Patriarchy Uses Women's Trauma Against Them Hardback

Hardback

Description

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLERAngry, opinionated, mouthy, aggressive, hysterical, mad, disordered, crazy, psycho, delusional, borderline, hormonal . . . Women have long been pathologized, locked up and medicated for not conforming to whichever norms or stereotypes are expected of them in that time and space.

Sexy But Psycho is a challenging and uncomfortable book which seeks to explore the way professionals and society at large pathologize and sexualise women and girls.

Utilising decades of research, real case studies and new data from her own work, Dr Taylor's book will critically analyse the way we label women with personality disorders.

Why are women and girls pathologized for being angry about oppression and abuse?

How have so many women been duped into believing that they are mentally ill, for having normal and natural reactions to their experiences?

Sexy But Psycho argues that there is a specific purpose to convincing women and girls that they are mentally ill, as the world avoids addressing violence against women and their centuries of ignored trauma.
