It is a thoroughly researched expose of the way women are treated by doctors, medical researchers, and the people who control the money that goes into funding medical research and health programs. Whether in the case of a medical school professor who inserts slides of centerfold models into his anatomy lectures, or of a female intern who was labeled as crazy by her supervisor because she questioned his methods and stood up for herself, or of a Rockefeller University project that explored the impact of obesity on the tendency for women to develop breast or endometrial cancer, but used only men in the study, the authors have found pervasive, institutionalized prejudice against women in medicine. Eileen Nechas and Denise Foley reveal some startling information that uncovers the deplorable state of womens health care today, and will inspire women to challenge the quality of the health care they receive and take action against the legislators and institutions that promote and maintain the antifeminine bias in medicine today. In research clinics, medical schools, and doctors offices, women are not getting the treatment they need or deserve. Based on interviews and a thorough review of the medical literature, this timely book puts womens health care, the feminist issue of the nineties, into clear perspective.
