Title Details
Science of Woman by Moscucci, Ornella
Science of Woman: Gynaecology and Gender in England, 1800-1929
by Moscucci, Ornella
 
Is women's destiny rooted in biology? Since the end of the 18th century, the science of gynecology has legitimized the view that women are "naturally" fitted for activities in the private sphere of the family. This book argues that the definition of femininity as propounded by gynecological science is a cultural product of a wider, more political context.
