THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER Angry, opinionated, mouthy, aggressive, hysterical, mad, disordered, crazy, psycho, delusional, borderline, hormonal . . . Women have long been pathologized, locked up and medicated for not conforming to whichever norms or stereotypes are expected of them in that time and space. Sexy But Psycho is a challenging and uncomfortable book which seeks to explore the way professionals and society at large pathologize and sexualise women and girls. Utilising decades of research, real case studies and new data from her own work, Dr Taylor's book will critically analyse the way we label women with personality disorders. Why are women and girls pathologized for being angry about oppression and abuse? How have so many women been duped into believing that they are mentally ill, for having normal and natural reactions to their experiences? Sexy But Psycho argues that there is a specific purpose to convincing women and girls that they are mentally ill, as the world avoids addressing violence against women and their centuries of ignored trauma.

Recensioner i media

Dr Taylor's fierce polemic shows how professionals can pathologise and sexualise women and girls and how misogynistic the medical model can be . . . interesting [with] moments of brilliance . . . * Irish Independent * Fierce and fearless. * Irish Examiner * The topics touched on in Sexy But Psycho are wide-ranging, but, for me, the most important message from the book is the vital importance of listening carefully to what women have to say. * Independent *
