Sexism in the medical system

As a colleague and I are at work on a collection about pathologized gender in health and medicine (check out the call for papers here), I’ve been paying special attention to issues of gender bias in medicine lately. This forthcoming book by Maya Dusenbery sounds like important work. It promises “an intersectional feminist analysis of the problem,” based on experiential evidence. Dusenbery says: “I’m hoping to highlight a diverse range of experiences that illustrate how gender and sex bias intersects with the many other biases of the medical system — racism, classism, homophobia, transphobia, ageism, fat phobia, etc.”
