In Defence of History and Class Consciousness
Hover over image to zoom
From prescribing the "rest cure" to diagnosing hysteria, the medical profession has consistently treated women as weak and pathological. Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English’s concise history of the sexual politics of medical practices shows how the biomedical rationale was used to justify sex discrimination throughout the culture, and how its vestiges are evident in abortion policy and other reproductive rights struggles today.
Authors: Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English, with an introduction by Susan Faludi.
