Refusing to be a 'Wife'! explores how women can transform their relationships in order to minimize the inequality found in traditional families. Drawing on interviews with women and men in explicitly anti-sexist living arrangements, the book provides a new perspective on the division of domestic labour, mothering, marriage and financial allocation in the home. The author examines the relationship between home and work, and the construction of gender equality, and discusses the key roles of women in the sphere of the home: wife, mother, worker, showing how the role/identity of 'wife' dominates and affects the other two roles.
Medical Response to Child Sexual Abuse: A Resource for Clinicians and Other Professionals was specifically developed to provide the necessary information for equipping clinicians, nurses, and other medical professionals with the essential tools for navigating the vexing territory of child sexual abuse. The sexual mistreatment of children remains a difficult and often disturbing challenge for medical providers. In addition to the rapidly expanding and often counterintuitive research on genital injury and healing, clinicans are also faced with complex and frequently painful emotional issues, a need to work productively and openly with nonmedical interdisciplinary team members, and the possibility of being called to provide testimony in the uncomfortable and sometimes adversarial courtroom.
One of the least discussed topics related to any chronic illness - is sexuality and how it is affected by your illness. This is most often due to the view of sex in society.

A big help that this book provides is information on what the common issues are and how they should be handled. So you can understand that you are NOT alone, and that you can bring this to your doctor's attention without them laughing at you. It is important to your health, so don't suffer any longer thinking that you are the only one.
