Women Against Electric Shock Treatment

Women Against Electric Shock Treatment

Oakland: Women's Press Collective, [1970s]. [8p.] 5.5x8.5 inches, illustrations, photos, in original worn pictorial wraps. A pamphlet by four women who had appeared on KQED to speak out against the use of eclectroconvulsive therapy which was regaining popularity at the time (one of whom lost her job as a result).

"...It is used to control us, to make us forget the reasons for our anger, to silence our rebellion. Electric shock treatments are a part of the mental health system that makes women feel 'crazy' when we become dissatisfied with our roles as defined by society."
