Women have long been pathologised, medicalised, locked up and medicated for not conforming to social stereotypes.
Why are women who report violence against them so likely to be diagnosed with personality disorders? Why are women and girls pathologised for being angry about oppression and abuse? How have so many women been duped into believing that they are mentally ill, for having normal and natural reactions to traumatic experiences?
In Sexy But Psycho, Dr Jessica Taylor draws on case studies, new data and research to analyse the way society labels women as sexy but psycho.
Psychiatry is the patriarchy with a prescription pad. Read this book and start a revolution.
