Citing vivid examples, including numerous "treatments" and "rest cures" perpetrated on women through the decades, the authors analyze the biomedical rationale used to justify the wholesale sex discrimination throughout our culture. Ever since Hippocrates, male medics have treated women as the "weaker" sex. Complaints and Disorders reveals this history and asserts the need for a new substance and style of medical practice as it relates to women.
