DESCRIPTION

Mention the word autism and the room suddenly turns silent. Its the dreaded A word. Peoples attention turns to late night TV public service ads declaring that autistic children are imprisoned by autism and need curing at all cost. Recent autobiographies have helped dispel this dire description by suggesting that autism is not a prison and that the door is unlocked and youre free to come in. Women from Another Planet? moves beyond these autistic life stories in important ways. Its a collection of stories and conversations, all of them by women on the autism spectrum who speak candidly, insightfully, and often engagingly about both their gender in terms of their autism and their autism in terms of their gender. It is written not just for parents and professionals, like the other works, but also to those women still searching for ways to understand the unnamed difference they live with, as well as the wider audience of discerning readers. If you enter the unlocked door of these Women from Another Planet? you may end up with a question mark or two about your planet. Is normalcy really all its cracked up to be?

It's a collection of stories and conversations, all of them by women on the autism spectrum who speak candidly, insightfully, and often ... Women from Another Planet? 974 likes. Women from Another Planet? was the first and for five years the only book focused on autism in women.
