The education that we women receive about our bodies is still massively influenced by many years of patriarchal dominance. We accept its teachings under the assumption that it is the result of centuries of high-quality research. The trouble is that that research wasn't always as self-reflective as it is now, and many of today's "accepted" definitions and conceptualizations of fundamental facts of female and male bodies were shaped by the patriarchy of that time. In fact, they go so far back that we've stopped questioning them.

What is the origin of the word vagina, for instance? Why do we assume that women must experience pain during childbirth? Do the diagrams of our reproductive organs represent a real-life woman? It is crucial that we learn to question these things, to go back to the very foundations of the science of women's health. We must become aware of the etymology of the names we use for ourselves every day.

A great deal of information has recently come to light, but it is rarely imparted. This book will teach you everything you weren't taught at school and to question all the things you were!
