The Changing Face of Women's Health
is a groundbreaking show
that demystifies the science of women's health and interprets the
latest medical research to help women make informed decisions about
their health. "This is the first major exhibition to focus exclusively
on women's health," says Exploratorium project manager Alice Krasinski.
"It tracks how scientific thought has evolved to recognize that
women are physiologically different from men."
exhibition offers something for everyone, from teenage girls struggling
with poor body image to men hoping to learn more about the women
in their life. A lively mix of interactive and multimedia exhibits,
cultural artifacts, and special events helps visitors explore the
history of women's health through the lens of biology, culture,
society, and lifestyle, and discover just how far science has come
in understanding the female body.
