Editors: Elizabeth R. Bertone-Johnson (Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology, Director of the Center for Research and Education in Women’s Health, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA, US)
Book Description:
Historically a taboo subject, the menstrual cycle has had a profound impact on women’s lives throughout history. Cursed? Biologic and Cultural Aspects of the Menstrual Cycle and Menstruation explores in detail how menstruation and the menstrual cycle affect the lives of girls and women around the world. In addition to presenting current research on biologic and health issues surrounding menstruation and menstrual cycle function, authors discuss how menstruation directly impacts culture, art, feminism and gender politics, education and global development. Questions addressed include:
• Does diet influence when menstruation first starts?
• Are women who regularly experience premenstrual symptoms potentially at higher risk for cardiovascular disease?
• How do modifiable factors such as diet affect ovarian aging and menopause timing?
• How does menstruation limit girls’ access to education in developing countries?
• How do third-wave feminists counter menstrual taboo through art and activism?
This collection of essays and original research articles offers a comprehensive perspective of the undeniable importance of the menstrual cycle in women’s lives. (Nova Biomedical)
