Managing Epilepsy With Women In Mind. At various stages in their life cycle, women with epilepsy have different needs from men and need a more female-orientated service. However, services for people with epilepsy remain androcentric and largely ignore that 50% of the recipients of epilepsy care in the United Kingdom are female. Indeed, 40% of those women engaged with epilepsy services are of childbearing potential. Epilepsy and its treatment can affect or compromise the menstrual cycle, contraception, fertility, pregnancy, child development in the womb, post-birth childcare and menopause, just as these life stages can affect epilepsy and its management. Based on audited clinical experience over the last 10 years at one of the very few clinics for women with epilepsy in the United Kingdom and on the curriculum of the Birmingham University Masters Course in Epilepsy, this book attempts to address these issues for women with epilepsy using evidence-based recommendations for care where possible and indicating those many areas where evidence is lacking and further research is needed.

The Woman In White. 'In one moment, every drop of blood in my body was brought to a stop ... There, as if it had that moment sprung out of the earth ... stood the figure of a solitary Woman, dressed from head to foot in white' The Woman in White famously opens with Walter Hartright's eerie encounter on a moonlit London road. Engaged as a drawing master to the beautiful Laura Fairlie, Walter is drawn into the sinister intrigues of Sir Percival Glyde and his 'charming' friend Count Fosco, who has a taste for white mice, vanilla bonbons and poison. Pursuing questions of identity and insanity along the paths and corridors of English country houses and the madhouse, The Woman in White is the first and most influential of the Victorian genre that combined Gothic horror with psychological realism. The Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.

Representing The Marginal Woman In Nineteenth Century Russian Literature. Gender-oriented studies of 19th-century Russian literature have struggled with how to determine the feminism or misogyny of particular authors. By focusing on the character type of the ward, or young female dependent, this book examines the narrative strategies used by such writers as Pushkin, Zhukova, Tolstoy, Herzen, and Dostoevsky to represent socially marginal women in their works. Drawing on Bakhtin's concepts of dialogue and polyphony, this volume examines the following question: does he present them dialogically, i.e., as subjects in their own right, with their own point of view. By proposing this new way of approaching the texts, the book corrects the charges of misogyny leveled at classical Russian literature.
