Description

Throughout history menopause has been shrouded in myth and superstition. Niki Bezzant, author of This Changes Everything, discusses some of the strange treatments and 'cures' that male doctors and healers have inflicted on women when they reached the end of their reproductive lives. From ancient Rome to as recently as the 1960s, these 'remedies' range from the odd to the tragic and, with our modern understanding, frankly infuriating.
