    1. Hard to review Toward the end, she got so right on that I wanted to cheer I wanted to pull out quotes and send them to friends To cherish the book forever for reading and re reading.But then again, maybe I should just get on with my life.Anyway, her initial chapters dealing with the history of menopause, or the climeractic as she prefers to call it, are as sad as you would expect The tendency of male doctors and philosophers to view the female body as a frail, diseased version of a man s to trea [...]

    2. Nobody knows what to do with a woman who is not perpetually fawning Calm, grave, quiet women drive anophobes sic to desperation Women who refuse even to try to empower the penis are old bats and old bags, crones, mothers in law, castrating women and so forth Though female culture cannot afford to give such attitudes even token respectability, we could see our way to exploit male panic if we dared.

    3. I was really disappointed in this book Not only is it rather poorly written, it spends very little time on what is actually happening to our bodies from a medical point of view The history of the horrific experiments that women have been subjected to was the most interesting part, but then a huge part of the book was dedicated to women feeling worthless because of lost sex appeal I mean, I get that for a lot of women, especially traditional heterosexual women this would be a difficult thing whe [...]

    4. I m going against the grain here, I know pretty much everyone who has reviewed this raves about it but I didn t recognise any of this as my experience I persisted, coming back again and again thinking the tide would surely turn and I d find some resonance in the next few pages, but never did Officially throwing in the towel at page 104 If anyone tells me there s a radical change at some point after that I ll come back and resume reading, otherwise, I m moving on.

    5. An important subject and all credit to her for trying to make women feel better about the menopause Quite academic with lots of research although a lot of this is now probably a bit out of date, first published in the 90s I think but she seems to think homeopathy is perfectly acceptable Also she is very serious Banging on about the death of the womb which didn t make me feel very joyfulI shall search out something else on the same subject but a bit recent and a bit less fierce.

    6. Although quite well researched it is far too long Not a bad book for anyone considering having a worthwhile life as an older woman she often strays into general discussions of feminisim from the older woman s perspective.

    7. Germaine Greer, still liberating I love this woman And I just found out she wrote a 2000 book called The Whole Woman, which I m going to get ASAP She s a million times smarter and two years older than I am, and she s my almost forgotten goddess.

    8. review to follow, still trying to absorb a lot of what she writes aboutwhy does it seem to apply to my Mom than me
