Feminist icon Chesler’s pioneering work–2. 5 million copies sold–revised and updated for the first time in thirty years. This definitive book was the first to address critical questions about women and mental health. Combining patient interviews with an analysis of women’s roles in history, society, and myth, Chesler concludes that there is a terrible double standard when it comes to women’s psychology. In this new edition, she addresses head-on many of the most relevant issues to women and mental health today, including eating disorders, social acceptance of antidepressants, addictions, sexuality, postpartum depression, and more.
