About the Book

Women's bodies often change as they face hormone depletion, menarche, pregnancy, menopause and ageing – and only women experience them. Talking about women’s bodily changes is most definitely a challenging topic because women considered the changes as private matters and some dealt with in silence. To unravel the complexity of the topic, this book brings readers to the real stories of women who struggle with their bodily changes, how it is understood and comprehend by many. It compiles several themes related to women's issues written by academics from the field of medicine and social sciences. The increasingly pervasive influence of Western perceptions of youth, femininity and sexuality, together with the increasing adoption of biomedical treatments have altered cultural understandings of women’s bodies.
