Hormonal : A Conversation About Women's Bodies, Mental Health and Why We Need to Be Heard, Paperback / softback Book

Hormonal : A Conversation About Women's Bodies, Mental Health and Why We Need to Be Heard Paperback / softback

Description

'The essential hormone handbook . . . it should be made part of the core curriculum up and down the land' STYLIST 'Both fascinating and a huge relief' GRAZIA HORMONAL explores everything from contraception to PMS, in relation to anxiety, depression and taboos about hysteria and the 'hormonal' woman.

It is a compelling portrait of the modern landscape of women and health, showing us how to navigate stigma and misinformation. Combining her own experiences with extensive research and expert contributions, Eleanor Morgan explores the relationship between the female body, the female mind and the ways in which women's bodies are being medicalised.

As Morgan argues, we've gotten better at talking about mental health, but we still shy away from discussing periods, miscarriage, endometriosis and menopause.

That results in a lack of vital understanding for women, particularly as those processes are inextricably connected to our mental health; by exploring women's bodies in conjunction with our minds, Morgan urges for new thinking about our health. 'Filled with wisdom and wit and brilliant insight' Amy Ferris, author of Marrying George Clooney: Confessions from a Midlife Crisis'Hormonal feels like an essential guide in helping us truly understand our cores' VOGUE
