Description


With the ardent tone of a close friend, Barbara Seaman draws on forty years of journalistic research to expose the "menopause industry" and shows how estrogen therapy often causes more problems—including breast cancer, heart attack, and stroke—than it cures. The Greatest Experiment Ever Performed on Women tracks the well-intentioned discovery of synthetic estrogen through the unconscionable and misleading promotion of a dangerous drug.

About the Author


An author, women’s health activist, and energizing influence on hundreds of younger writers and organizers for nearly half a century, the legendary BARBARA SEAMAN (1935-2008) persistently challenged the medical establishment and pharmaceutical companies by exposing their drive for profit at the expense of women. After her first three books, the New York Times wrote that she had "triggered a revolution, fostering a willingness among women to take issues of health into their own hands." As Barbara Ehrenreich wrote about the publication of her first book, The Doctors’ Case Against the Pill (1969): "For many of us, women’s liberation began at that moment." Seaman was a founding advisory board member of and key advisor to Seven Stories Press.
