Description: "An eye-opening look at medicines treatment of women during the past two centuries". -- San Francisco Examiner-Chronicle

"A valuable resource". -- The Washington Post

"A 'must-read' for all women". -- National Council on Women's Health

"Provides ammunition for a vigorous movement by women to demand equal health care". -- USA Today

"Find a doctor who has read Outrageous Practices". -- Houston Chronicle

"A thorough examination of how the medical establishment has treated women... Comprehensive analysis, well presented and well documented". -- Kirkus Reviews

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' and psychiatrists' offices, medical schools, research labs, government health-related agencies, and biomedical and pharmaceutical industries.
-- New paperback edition of a powerful book about gender bias in the medical establishment.
-- New preface by authors brings the issues up-to-date.
