Join Nation Books author Abby Norman at Books Are Magic in Brooklyn, NY on Friday, March 9th for a discussion of her book, Ask Me About My Uterus: A Quest to Make Doctors Believe in Women's Pain.
In Ask Me About My Uterus, Norman describes what it was like to have her pain dismissed, to be told it was all in her head, only to be taken seriously when she was accompanied by a boyfriend who confirmed that her sexual performance was, indeed, compromised. Putting her own trials into a broader historical, sociocultural, and political context, Norman shows that women's bodies have long been the battleground of a never-ending war for power, control, medical knowledge, and truth. It's time to refute the belief that being a woman is a preexisting condition.
