Kurzbeschreibung

2. März 1999
Throw out the Stereotypes!

Just like a woman! The very phrase is a put-down, echoing the long-entrenched stereotypes of what it means to be female.  From earliest recorded history, women have been cast in terms of males: lesser versions that are frailer, smaller, dimmer, less competent, defective.  Never again.  This lively, meticulously documented book turns the dismissive old catchphrase inside out.

It is only in the past few years that researchers in many fields have actively focused on what being female really means.  Their startling conclusion: almost every assumption made about women--physical, medical, historical, psychological--turns out to be untested, unproven, or untrue.  Rather than classifying women only by their biology (as the medical establishment has), or denying they are biological creatures (as some feminists have), Just Like a Woman presents the cutting-edge findings in anthropology, physiology, psychology, neuroscience, endocrinology, and medicine that are redefining what a woman is.

These findings reveal the complex interconnections between all aspects of a woman's life from infancy to old age.  Gender science is confirming that the female of the species is not the second sex but the separate sex.  She is as powerful as the male but with different strengths: intuitiveness, adaptability, durability, sensitivity, sensuality.  Her brain is smaller but more densely packed with neurons, her senses of smell and hearing more acute, her core body temperature higher.  She processes emotions and perceives pain differently; she sleeps more lightly; she is more vulnerable to certain mental disorders and more resistant to others; her body reacts differently from a man's to many medications; and the rhythms of her monthly cycles shape not only her fertility but her mood, her creativity, and her resilience.  These are only some of the special aspects spelled out in this book, and all of them are crucial to a woman's understanding of her body, her mind, her spirit, and her relationships with those she loves.  From conception on, she is female to the core.

This stereotype-shattering book lays out what it means to live in a woman's body, think with a woman's brain, drink in the world with a woman's senses, and react with a woman's sensibility to the stresses and elations of her multiple roles.  Refreshingly free of ideology, Just Like a Woman offers a stunningly liberating message that expands our concept of human potential and will forever change the way every woman views herself.

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

The entry of more and more women into science, writes Dianne Hales, has started a quiet revolution, a reassessment of accepted notions of what it is to be a woman. "Women are not the second sex but a separate sex, female to the bone and to the very cells that make up those bones.... In affirming our femaleness, we are not diminishing or discrediting our mental ability or essential equality. Rather, we are recognizing a fundamental source of strength and sustenance."

This "equal but different" stance is crucial to modern gender studies--heretofore, Hales says, most if not all medical and psychological research was done on men, and the conclusions recklessly applied to women. Now, science is finding out that females have their own unique strengths that equip them both for the biological roles they may choose to embrace as well as the societal roles they have often been denied. Hales explodes stereotypical notions of physiology and psychology in this well-researched and liberating book. --Therese Littleton

Pressestimmen

Early praise for Just Like a Woman:

"A superb achievement--Dianne Hales has challenged accepted 'wisdom' and presented alternative ways of looking at gender in the light of the exciting emergence of 'gender science.' This book is at the cutting edge and should be widely read."
--Carol C. Nadelson, M.D., Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School and Past President, American Psychiatric Association

"In Just Like a Woman, Dianne Hales clearly explains how women are different from men in important ways and eloquently describes why these differences matter so much.  Highly recommended!"
--Dean Ornish, M.D., President and Director, Preventive Medicine Research Institute and Clinical Professor of Medicine, UCSF School of Medicine

"Just Like a Woman is an extraordinary book about the unique biology of women.  It provides up-to-the-minute scientific information that's accurate and balanced, yet engaging to read.  A fantastic book!"
--Miriam Nelson, Ph.D., Director, Center for Health Promotion and Physical Activity at the School of Nutrition, Tufts University, and author of Strong Women Stay Young

"A book on women which is both factual and moving--a rare combination! A masterful book--From both a scientific and a literary perspective, this is a unique contribution to our understanding of the psychology of women."
--Vivien Burt, M.D., Ph.D., Director, Women's Life Center, Neuropsychiatric Institute, UCLA School of Medicine

"I could not put this spectacular book down.  Dianne Hales synthesizes scientific information in an informative and easily readable way. Just Like a Woman should help to revolutionize the way women are viewed in the world."
--Beverly Whipple, Ph.D., R.N., F.A.A.N, Professor, Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey and President, American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists

"This lively account of the newest developments in gender-specific medicine should be obligatory reading for every woman who has felt confused, patronized, and/or misunderstood in her doctor's office....A resource for patient and physician alike."
--Marianne Legato, M.D., Director, Partnership for Women's Health, Columbia University

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Weibliche Theologen in der englischsprachigen Welt, die sich mit Spiritualität in der Perspektive der Frau befassen, unterscheiden seit einiger Zeit zwischen "authoritative knowledge" einerseits und "embodied knowledge" andererseits. Der erste Ausdruck bezieht sich auf Informationen, die die Wissenschaft (im härteren und engeren Sinne des Wortes) bereitstellt, der zweite Ausdruck dagegen meint "persönliche Erfahrung, eher mit dem Herzen gefühlt als mit dem Kopf herausgefunden". Die Autorin erklärt frank und frei, daß ihr Buch vorwiegend auf "authoritative knowledge" beruht. Dies gilt jedenfalls für die Kapitel 1 bis 10. In den Kapiteln 11 bis 15 schaltet sie weitgehend auf "embodied knowledge" um, weil sie meint, daß die Wissenschaft (im härteren und engeren Sinne des Wortes) über die das weibliche Gehirn, weibliche Gefühle, weibliche Emotionen, psychisch/psychiatrische Verletzbarkeit, weibliche Sexualität, die Art wie Frauen fühlen, wahrnehmen, lieben, kommunizieren und sich an "Quellen spiritueller Stärke" laben, weitgehend ignoriere. Die Autorin zitiert einen interessanten Satz des Psychiaters/Psychoanalytikers Theodor Reik, der als Leitmotiv ihres Buches gelten mag: "In unserer Zivilisation fürchten sich Männer davor, daß sie nicht männlich genug sein könnten, und Frauen fürchten sich davor, daß sie nur für Frauen gehalten werden könnten." Just like a woman. Die Autorin will verbreitete Stereotypen über Frauen gründlich zerstören: "Throw out the stereotypes!". Eines der schlimmsten dieser Stereotypen betrifft die Menstruation.

Vorbemerkung: Diese Rezension hatte ich am 19. Mai 1999 anonym ("Ein Kunde") geschrieben und hier eingestellt. Ich habe sie etwas überarbeitet und unter meinem wirklichen Namen noch einmal veröffentlicht. Ich hoffe, dass dadurch keine Irritationen entstehen.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Now this was a good book 29. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I enjoyed this book, much more than I did Natalie Angier's "Women:An Intimate Geography". It brought up many issues facing the new role science must play in caring for women as our society sheds many notions of what women are "really" like. As science learns more and more about women, she rightly takes the approach that men and women ARE different, and need to be cared for, and understood in different ways. This is neither good or bad, just different, and the way things are. The only problem I have with the book, and it is a small but very nagging one, is that Hales, like many other writters suppose that most research was done on/for men because women were considered less important. While the feeling may have been true throughout the history of humankind, much of the research we have has come from studies done from two very male dominated areas: prisons and the military. If all you have are pretty much all men to do research on, most of your research is going to be male orientated. I do agree though that it is surely time for science to get past that and realize that it needs to make more progress in helping women.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Made me proud to be a woman 21. Januar 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I read this book because I read an excerpted article from it in Reader's Digest, an article on differences between the male and female brain. I enjoyed the book, with its broader scope, even more than the article. I read the whole thing in a few days. The foundation of Dianne Hales book, as it claims, is science. Extensive notes in the back give the sources for all the research studies she cites. But the book is hardly a cold recitation of facts. She interprets the results through her own experiences as a woman (daughter, wife, mother), and the experiences of people she knows. The book is very personal, very readable, and, in my opinion, entertaining. She covers a wide range of topics that influence a woman's experience. Her premise is that neither men nor women are superior, just different, and we need to understand those differences. Usually, however I get a sense from her pages that she thinks being female is something special. I found myself time and again feeling proud to be a member of this sisterhood of women.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Good Supporting Text 13. Februar 2014
Von Jessica Carr - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This was a required text for a psychology class on evolution and gender - this text helps support why women and men act the way they do subconsciously and also includes a good bit of evolutionary psychology as well.

Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a book for ALL women to read - especially young ones. If I had only known some of the things in it at an earlier age my life would have been much more meaningful. Young women out there need to find out what they are all about.
