Unwell Women by Elinor Cleghorn
Item # 9780593182970
product description Unwell Women by Elinor Cleghorn explores the history of medicine and women, which has been fraught with misdiagnoses and often mythical causes. After finally getting a proper diagnosis after 10 years of iffy potential reasons, the author delved into the subject and soon found a legacy of medicine failing women. From the ancient diagnosis of wandering womb to witch trials and hysteria as a catchall condition, she sheds light on the very long journey women have had to overcome and continue to face. Featuring case studies and histories, it sheds light on how the time for change has come.
