Description - Women's Health by Christina Lee
This work argues that the social construction of gender restricts women's lives and choices, and that this has negative consequences for women's health and wellbeing. It is organized around restrictive social myths about women: such as women being at the mercy of their hormones; the maternal instinct myth; women's "natural" place as unpaid domestic workers and family carers; women as valuable objects so long as they conform to stereotypes of youth, beauty and sexual availability.
