Quest for Conception

Reviews Marcia Inhorn’s book Quest for Conception which links the rate of infertility in modern Eygpt to its male dominated society.

Marcia Inhorn examines the connection between infertility and patriarchy in contemporary Egyptian society. This leads her to study various social phenomena in Egypt, including cultural beliefs, family structures, community relations, gender and religion. Overall, Inhorn does an excellent job in providing extensive documentation on the subject of infertility as both a social and medical problem for women.
