Vaginal Politics, by Ellen Frankfort Bantam paperback, $1.95. Here we have xonsciousness-raising (and hair-raising) chapters on the in- sensitivity of surgeons, the low professional status of gynecologists, the politics of drug marketing, medical experimentation on poor women, and sundry other exploitations of women, and sometimes men. There is a Women's Health Movement in this country, and it has already had some impact. Women are the major consumers of health care, and they are seeking more emphasis on preventive care and more information about their own conditions, in order to have a voice in decisions regarding their care. To quote a significant passage: "The dependency women are made to feel for their doctors becomes ironic when one considers that women are given sole responsibility for the health of the family. There is hardly a woman's magazine that doesn't feature an article each issue on "How to Prevent Your Husband's Heart Attack" with the predictable answer: be sweet and understanding, forget your own needs and remember that it is the man who has been pressured all day and now deserves a period of peace and service. Although magazines continue to remind women how they should subordinate their needs to those of their family (advice peddled under the guise of health tips), most women are rarely taught the basic facts of biology or health care. The result if total dependency on the advice of doctors in perfect mimicry of the dependency relationship of marital roles. Other political exploiters of women are also given their lumps, as our un-friend David Reuben, who might write "Any Orangutan Can" any day now. The book contains good information about the self-help movement and concludes with a section of practical information for dealing on a one-to-one basis with your gynecologist. M. R.
