Hysterical, anxious, depressed, and bitchy are just a handful of the words used to describe female mood swings. Rather than medicating with antidepressants and pharmaceuticals, psychiatrist Julie Holland says the key is to embrace this moodiness is a return to the basics. Moody Bitches outlines the positives and negatives of prescription medications (the pill won’t get you pregnant, but it could attract you to the wrong partner) and shows the way forward. In conversation with Alex McKay, Town Hall board member, she’ll share examples from this moody manifesto, explain why moodiness is a strength–not a weakness, and give concrete steps for calming moods the natural way–through better food, sex, exercise, and even cannabis.
