Answer: 

Estrogens have antioxidant properties which are due to their ability to bind to estrogen receptors and to up-regulate the expression of antioxidant enzymes via intracellular signalling pathways

Answer: 

Estrogen donates hydrogen atoms from its phenolic hydroxyl group to lipid peroxyradicals what results in the termination of the chain reactions of cell membrane phospholipides, which are the key reactions in cell damage.
