Summary
  • "It's time for women to reject the "hormone myth" and own their emotions in a healthy and realistic way. This provocative book exposes pervasive myths about women's hormones and shows how flawed, obsolete research and sexism have combined to keep women "in their place." The idea that women become raving lunatics when their hormones fluctuate is firmly entrenched in American culture--images of hormone-crazed women are prominent on TV and in movies, books, and magazines--but a thorough examination of the evidence overwhelmingly tells us otherwise. This book will confront the pervasive myth that women are at the mercy of their reproductive hormones, and illustrate how the perpetuation of this stereotype harms women. Scientific evidence shows that the majority of women do not experience major mental disorders linked to their hormones. Rather, a woman's mood changes can be attributed to many of the same environmental factors responsible for mood changes in men. With a thorough exploration of women's hormonal lives, from the initiation of menstruation through menopause,The Hormone Mythwill help you reject the negative stereotype of the hormone-crazed woman and gain an appreciation for women's high functioning and potential across their lifetime"--
  • "Although the idea that women become raving lunatics when their hormones fluctuate is firmly entrenched in American culture, a thorough examination of the evidence overwhelmingly tells us otherwise. This provocative book exposes the pervasive myths about women's hormones--which lead to false beliefs about women's competence--by illustrating how flawed, obsolete research and sexism have combined to keep women "in their place," and skillfully shows how women can reject the "hormone myth" and own their emotions in a healthy and realistic way"--
