Oakland, CA: The Women's Press Collective, [n.d. Circa 1973]. First Edition. 8vo pamphlet saddle-stapled in wraps. Two tiny stains af front wrap. Previous owner's name at first page. Minimal dampstain to one corner of text. Near fine. (Item ID: 16330)

This pamphlet was produced by a group of four women, two patients treated with EST and two medical professionals, calling themselves Women Against Electric Shock Treatment. This group originally appeared on a television program aired on bay-area public station KQED, and the pamphlet was released as a companion piece, consisting of the transcript of the televised conversation and illustrations taken from psychiatric journals. The pamphlet expresses vehement opposition to Electic Shock Treatment from a distinctly feminist viewpoint. The introduction states "Electric shock treatments are part of the mental health system that makes women feel "crazy" when we become dissatisfied with our roles as defined by society." A fascinating document combining patient and professional experiences with a decidedly political agenda.
