It's Hard to Be a Woman!
A guide to understand and deal depression from a gender perspective
For many people, depression is a female myth that has been on people's lips for years, only to give excuses for staying in bed, eating badly or crying uncontrollably. Nothing could be further from the truth. The World Health Organisation has already stated that women suffer more from depression than men, and it is on the rise.
It's Hard to Be a Woman! explains the five general issues that can lead to depression: one's childhood history, difficulties experienced throughout life, genetic factors, gender inequality, and the current social conditions. With this tool in hand, any reader will be able to understand what she is experiencing so she can create support networks, and carry out step-by-step activities that will bring about the change required to get out of such a painful stage.
