Medically male! The long history of menopuase, gender and pharmaceutical drug trials
Start Date: 12/6/2017Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 12/6/2017End Time: 8:00 PM

Event Description
Professor Lynn Botelho (Indiana University of Pennsylvania) explores the vexed and contradictory history of the gendered construction of the female body, from Aristotle to modern medical drug trials, that results in an old woman that is medically male. She focuses on Shakespeare’s England and why menopause is all but missing from everything from medical treatises to personal letters and diaries. Everyone knew that menopause existed, yet no one, not even the women themselves, discussed it. After searching for menopause for 30 years, Botelho hones in on how gender expectations can cross the line into biological and medical ‘realities’.
