Review of 'Love, Leda' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

More of 3.5 rating. Liked lots about this, but was very frustrated about the way the middle aged woman's body was described in such a derogative tone and it felt like the male characters had more space for variations within their gender bracket than the female ones. Of course those brackets were quite narrow in the time the novel is set in, but the male gaze of the time is very palpable.

Frauen der Unterwelt (Paperback) 5 stars

Review of 'Frauen der Unterwelt' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

Dieses Buch vereint Tine Rahel Völckers Theaterstück mit einer informativen Einleitung und drei Beiträgen, die Behinderung, Pathologisierung unerwünschten Verhaltens von Frauen und Psychiatrie-Kritik thematisieren. Alle Elemente dieses Buchs sind gleichermaßen lesenswert und bereichern das Stück, sowohl als zusätzliche Einblicke als auch mit kritischen Hinweisen. Sehr lesenswert.
