When Medicine Meets Gender

Edited by Nicole Edelman and Florence Rochefort

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 the menopause gender-related? In this issue of Clio, we discover a new history of the practice and discourse of medicine.
