Lea el libro que inspiró ¡El negocio del control de la natalidad! Millones de mujeres sanas toman un medicamento poderoso todos los días desde la mitad de la adolescencia hasta la menopausia, la píldora, pero pocas saben cómo funciona este medicamento o los posibles efectos secundarios. Contrariamente al mito cultural, la píldora anticonceptiva impacta en todos los órganos y funciones del cuerpo y, sin embargo, la mayoría de las mujeres ni siquiera la consideran una droga. En un intento por provocar una reacción violenta contra los anticonceptivos hormonales, la autora Holly Grigg-Spall pregunta: ¿Por qué no podemos criticar la píldora?

Feminismo puso el mundo patas arriba, sin embargo, en gran medida, el consultorio de los médicos se ha quedado estancado en el tiempo. La periodista Jennifer Block regresa al movimiento por la salud de las mujeres de la década de 1970 para comprender cómo en la supuesta era actual de empoderamiento, los cuerpos de las mujeres siguen siendo tan vulnerables al control médico, en particular sus órganos sexuales y, como resultado, su vida sexual. En este libro urgente, Block cuenta las historias de pacientes, médicos y reformadores, descubriendo la historia y la ciencia que podrían revolucionar el estándar de atención y cambiar la forma en que las mujeres piensan sobre su salud.

In a media landscape dominated by racially biased images of welfare queens and crack babies, Killing the Black Body exposed America's systemic abuse of Black women's bodies. From slave masters' economic stake in bonded women's fertility to government programs that coerced thousands of poor Black women into being sterilized as late as the 1970s, these abuses pointed to the degradation of Black motherhood--and the exclusion of Black women's reproductive needs in mainstream feminist and civil rights agendas.
Feminism turned the world upside down, yet to a large extent, the doctors' office has remained stuck in time. Journalist Jennifer Block returns to the 1970s women's health movement to understand how in today's supposed age of empowerment, women's bodies are still so vulnerable to medical control - particularly their sex organs, and as result, their sex lives. In this urgent book, Block tells the stories of patients, clinicians, and reformers, uncovering history and science that could revolutionize the standard of care, and change the way women think about their health.
In Medical Bondage, Deirdre Cooper Owens examines a wide range of scientific literature and less formal communications in which gynecologists created and disseminated medical fictions about their patients, such as their belief that black enslaved women could withstand pain better than white "ladies." Even as they were advancing medicine, these doctors were legitimizing, for decades to come, groundless theories related to whiteness and blackness, men and women, and the inferiority of other races or nationalities.
Most diet plans were created by men for men, but women's bodies don't work the same way. Popular programs can actually make it harder for women to lose weight, because they can wreak havoc on a woman's complex and delicate hormonal system. In Women, Food, and Hormones, Dr. Gottfried presents a groundbreaking new plan that helps women balance their hormones so they can lose excess weight and feel better.
Research psychologist, Dr. Sarah E. Hill provides an even-handed, science-based understanding of who women are, both on and off the pill. It will change the way that women think about their hormones and how they view themselves. It also serves as a rallying cry for women to demand more information from science about how their bodies and brains work and to advocate for better research. This book will help women make more informed decisions about their health, whether they're on the pill or off of it.
