summary
Witches, Midwives & Nurses describes the corruption of the medical establishment and its role in demonizing women healers. With insight and originality, Ehrenreich and English relate witch hunts in the Middle Ages to the decline of midwives, and document the emergence of the Popular Health Movement and the current state of medicine in relation to women's rights.
