"Women's Health in Ancient Egypt" - Dr. Benson HarerBasic mammalian biology has shaped the lives of women throughout our existence. Women's concerns have been the same everywhere: attracting and keeping a mate, birthing, lactation, menstruation, contraception, infertility, abortion, etc. It is only in the past 50 years that women in developed nations can control their biology to shape their lives. Women in different cultures use different approaches to meet these common challenges. This talk will explore how the women in Ancient Egypt coped with the biological imperatives imposed on the human female mammal.-------------------------------Andrea Behan, SSEA Vancouversseavancouver@...
