About Book

Book Description
1891. Victorian reformer Alice Bunker Stockham was an Ob-Gyn from Chicago, and the fifth woman to be made a doctor in the United States. She lectured against the use of corsets by women, made public endorsements of the healthiness of masturbation for both men and women (If God did not want you to experience these beautiful feelings, he would not have given you the ability to experience them or the desire to produce them), advocated complete abstinence from alcohol and tobacco, and believed in women's rights. Her book, Tokology (the Greek word for obstetrics), is a layperson's text on gynecology and midwifery. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
