'I've been trying to decide which of my encounters with doctors, the ones from the early days of my illness, was the most mortifying, the most frustrating, the most burdened with assumptions about young women and their bodies and brains...' In the lead essay for the Winter issue of Meanjin, titled The Woman is Hysterical, author Fiona Wright argues that it's high time we trusted women to know their own bodies and minds and that 'when women speak, is it important to actually listen.'

Also featured are Melanie Cheng, Shaun Micallef, Nick Martin, Ben Walter, Alexis Wright, Corey Wakeling and a new review column edited by Alison Croggon
