About this product
- DescriptionHow did mepause change from being a natural (and often welcome) end to a woman's childbearing years to a deficiency disease in need of medical and pharmacological intervention? As she traces the medicalization of mepause over the last 100 years, historian Judith Houck challenges some widely held assumptions. By examining the history of mepause over the course of the twentieth century, Houck shows how the experience and representation of mepause has been profoundly influenced by biomedical developments and by changing roles for women and the changing definition of womanhood.
- Author BiographyJudith A. Houck is Assistant Professor at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in the Departments of Women's Studies, Medical History and Bioethics, and History of Science, as well as at the Center for Women's Health Research.
