Peggy Orenstein, contributing writer to the NEW YORK TIMES, reads her own columns about feminism, women's issues, and life. These columns, written over the past 30 years, focus on breast cancer, the trauma and sorrow of miscarriage, sexual pleasure, and other issues that are part and parcel of a healthy life. Orenstein's narration is smooth and often matter-of-fact. At the same time, she reveals her passion and sometimes anger, particularly at doctors and the medical world. Drawing from events, often medical crises in her own life and those of her friends, Orenstein raises listener awareness about the ever-present danger of neglecting to listen to one's body. At times repetitive, Orenstein soberly discusses the emotionally painful situations and decisions women face. An essential listen for women, and men, of all ages.
