Reinterpreting Menopause brings together a number of reflections from a broad range of areas including feminism, cultural studies, clinical medicine, sociology, philosophy and political science and includes the voices and experiences of menopausal women themselves. In an innovative series of essays, current thinking about medicine, society and the body is critically examined. Particular attention is given to the medical representations of menopause, biology and aging, the history of medical approaches to women and the tensions between bio-medical models and other explanations of menopause.

Contributors include: E. Ann Kaplan, Emily Martin, Mia Campioni, Fiona Mackie, Roe Sybylla, Wendy Rogers, Kwok Lei Leng, Margaret Morganroth Gullette and Robyn Gardner.
