Dusenbery does a great job deconstructing the history of our and the politics and sexist norms that pervade healthcare systems around the country and the world. This books covers all of its bases and refutes many of the arguments made regarding women in the healthcare/biomedical setting. This book also shows how much progress has been made, as well as the numerous areas where progress is lagging and lacking, and posits solutions as to how healthcare providers and caregivers can listen to women and treat their problems effectively.
Too long. Essentially it’s 14 hours of her saying “listen to women! Believe women!” While I tend to agree with her, it was repetitive and not what I expected in the least. I expected more discussion of current research in sex/gender differences in medicine rather than a lengthy diatribe about contested diseases, some of which she listed are not contested at all.
