What is urogynecology?
Greenville Health System answered
Urogynecology, a subspecialty within OB-GYN, focuses on the diagnosis and the medical and surgical treatment of female urinary disorders and pelvic ﬂoor dysfunction. Urogynecologists treat conditions such as urinary or fecal incontinence, emptying disorders (difﬁculty with urinating or moving the bowels), pelvic or bladder pain, overactive bladder (including the frequent need to void, bladder pressure and urgency), pelvic organ prolapse (descent of the vagina, bladder and/or uterus from the normal position), and sexual dysfunction. Urogynecologists are trained in minimally invasive reconstructive surgical techniques.
If your doctor says you must have a large abdominal incision for a pelvic problem or even a hysterectomy, you may want to see a urogynecologist for a second opinion.

How can working for social and political change help women?
Boston Women's Health Book Collective, Administration, answered
Connecting with a group that is involved in working for social and political change can be an empowering and helpful step for many women. It has two advantages: It keeps in plain sight the external causes of one's suffering and it reduces the sense of powerlessness and isolation by providing a way to try to reduce these troubles. It may also help victims feel less ashamed or unusual.
Women who have experienced poor treatment in the mental health system or have found the required help unavailable or unaffordable may be particularly interested in helping to design caring and accessible forms of help and campaigning to make them a reality.
Women whose rights have been violated by practices such as involuntary commitment and forced drugging may want to work for the social and political changes necessary to eliminate coercion from the mental health system. Especially for women who feel victimized or neglected by the system, working to reform mental health care can be empowering.
