|WOMEN'S TREATMENT FOR HYSTERIA|
Women. especially, suffered greatly over the last centuries because of laws allowing a husband, with the verification of a medical doctor, to put them into asylums (that were places of horror, torture, and neglect). Just imagine the reasons husbands could use to justify getting rid of their wives! Inheritances come to mind first...and a myriad of other evil reasons.

Why should mental illness be considered any less serious, worthy of attention, validation, and treatment? Why should the mentally ill be looked down upon and be a source of fear, more than someone suffering from a physical illness?
We like to think that there is no more cruelty in the treatment for the "insane." However, I have anecdotal evidence of horrible treatment at a state mental hospital right here in the US.
