Clio No. 37. When Medicine Meets Gender
How has medicine contributed to shape bodies, from Antiquity to the present day? Can it be said that illnesses, such as cancer, have a gender? When English women were banished to mental asylums in the nineteenth century, how did they rebel? Are our ideas about hormones and menopause gender-related?
In this issue of Clio, we discover a new history of the practice and discourse of medicine.
