All as seen in the show of the number one best seller! How a West End cabaret star accidentally ended up in Iraq. Drying his pink ballet tights on the anti-blast wall, using his Kevlar helmet as a wash bag, ending up on the naughty tank…

Girls Gone Wild: Women Use Hormones to Take Control? @ Jackson Lecture Theatre
Feb 22 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Girls Gone Wild: Women Use Hormones to Take Control? @ Jackson Lecture Theatre

Are women controlled by their hormones or do they control them? Or is it neither? Have pharmaceutical companies developed a multi-billion pound industry out of convincing women that hormones are something they can control? If there is such a thing as control, how is this gained and maintained? And what impact can and will new technologies have on these kinds of treatments?

All of these questions will be raised and addressed as we begin our discussion by presenting the works of two artists from the Transitional States exhibition. We will then welcome historians of medicine and sexuality who will offer differing perspectives on the use of hormones throughout recent history.

This discussion will address topics such as the history of the contraceptive pill, IVF and the introduction of new medical technologies, with a specific focus on whether such technologies have changed women’s sexual behaviour.
