Outrageous Practices: How Gender Bias Threatens Women's Health
Women's health is threatened by gender bias on three fronts: bias against women patients, bias against women doctors, health practitioners, and medical scientists, and bias against women as medical research subjects. Outrageous Practices, a highly acclaimed best-seller newly available in paperback, chronicles the history of a prejudiced health care establishment and shows how the current system remains captive to male-dominated medicine and research. The book examines how gender discrimination manifests itself in hospitals, physicians's and psychiatrists's offices, medical schools, research labs, government health-related agencies, and biomedical and pharmaceutical industries.
o New paperback edition of a powerful book about gender bias in the medical establishment.
o New preface by authors brings the issues up-to-date.
