Mention the word autism and the room suddenly turnssilent. Its the dreaded A word.

Peoples attentionturns to late night TV public service ads declaring that autistic children areimprisoned by autism and need curing at all cost. Recent autobiographies havehelped dispel this dire description by suggesting that autism is not a prisonand that the door is unlocked and youre free to come in. Women from Another Planet? moves beyond these autistic life storiesin important ways. Its a collection of stories and conversations, all of themby women on the autism spectrum who speak candidly, insightfully, and oftenengagingly about both their gender in terms of their autism and their autism interms of their gender. It is written not just for parents and professionals,like the other works, but also to those women still searching for ways tounderstand the unnamed difference they live with, as well as the wider audienceof discerning readers. If you enter the unlocked door of these Women from Another Planet? you may endup with a question mark or two about yourplanet. Is normalcy really all its cracked up to be?
