Über diesen Titel
Millions of American women and teenaged girls continue to risk their health and well-being to please others. Now, the coauthors of the bestseller The New Our Bodies, Our Selves explain why this is true--and what women can do about it. Exploring such topics as self-starvation and cosmetic surgery, Hyman and Rome offer vital information and exercises designed to enhance self-esteem.From Publishers Weekly:
Written in cooperation with the Boston Women's Health Book Collective (of The New Our Bodies, Ourselves fame), this treatment of issues such as body image (eating disorders, cosmetic surgery, breast implants), abusive relationships, rape and sexually transmitted diseases will seem unfortunately familiar to anyone who's perused women's magazines over the past decade. The premise is that "understanding health risks does not mean that we will safeguard our health" (i.e., women not only have to know how to take care of themselves, they must want to), but more solid advice would be of greater use. For example, rather than saying just that police usually can't intervene in domestic violence cases without evidence of harassment, intimidation or threats, explain what constitutes such evidence and how to go about collecting it. Instead, there is there is still too much emphasis on journal writing, support group-going, self-esteem building and counsel seeking along with self-evident filler ("abusers also lack empathy for their partners" and "we are at a disadvantage in heterosexual love relationships because of the long tradition of male dominance") and unilluminating, if angering, anonymous quotes (one "woman told of a judge laughing in response to her plea for protection from her batterer"). There's a big difference between women considering an eye lift and a woman in a dangerous, abusive relationship. Women in real trouble need more concrete help.
