Witches, midwives, and nurses : a history of women healers by Barbara Ehrenreich ( Book )
46 editions published between 1973 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 2,069 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
First published by the Feminist Press in 1973, Witches, Midwives & Nurses is an essential book about the corruption of the medical establishment and its historic roots in the demonizing of women healers. With insight and originality, the authors have woven together stories about the witch hunts of the Middle Ages, the emergence of the Popular Health Movement, and an analysis of the contemporary state of medicine in relation to women's rights. In a new introduction written for this special edition, Ehrenreich and English discuss how this crucial text emerged, how much has changed, and how "for all our gains, we clearly have our work cut out for us." --from back cover

"From prescribing the "rest cure" to diagnosing hysteria, the medical profession has consistently treated women as weak and pathological. Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English's concise history of the sexual politics of medical practices shows how the biomedical rationale was used to justify sex discrimination throughout the culture, and how its vestiges are evident in abortion policy and other reproductive rights struggles today"--Provided by publisher
