ALL IN HER HEAD The Truth and Lies Early Medicine Taught Us About Women's Bodies and Why It Matters Today

by | Read by Anna Caputo

Contemporary Culture • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Anna Caputo uses a blend of authority and compassion to deliver oncologist Elizabeth Comen's accounts of the ineffective and even harmful medical treatment given to women over four centuries. Comen's hands-on experience and extensive research inform her narrative of doctors' gross misunderstandings of women's bodies. Caputo delivers startling stories of bizarre treatments that took place from the sixteenth to the early twentieth century, as well as present-day struggles that women still face. Caputo ensures that the author's sarcasm and wit come through; both enliven the writing and the narration. This audiobook may outrage listeners as they hear how patriarchal values have compromised women's health. Comen's advice ultimately encourages women to reclaim their power by making better informed medical decisions. S.W. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2024]
