This article is part of the series:

We are very pleased to bring you a set of thoughtful engagements with Emilia Sanabria’s remarkable book, Plastic Bodies: Sex Hormones and Menstrual Suppression in Brazil (Duke University Press, 2016).  As you’ll see from the commentaries, Plastic Bodies is already well on its way to becoming a touchstone in the medical anthropology and STS literatures on gender, bodies, and pharmaceuticals.
