Women and Mental Health
New Directions for Change
Published March 1st 1985 by Routledge – 202 pages
Here is an illuminating feminist appraisal of the problems of sex differences and sexist treatment of women's mental health problems by state mental health agencies. In this provocative volume, prominent feminist scholars and practitioners provide insights into the problems of biased treatment of women and provide both factual evidence of that bias and effective, viable solutions for change. The editors are members of the Women's Task Force of the Department of Mental Health in the State of Michigan. The Task Force is comprised of women health professionals who are aware of sexism in the mental health services provided by the State and have taken action to change the biased treatment of women.
