BOOKS

  • All in Her Head: The Truth and Lies Early Medicine Taught Us About Women's Bodies and Why It Matters Today
    The fascinating history of women’s health as it’s never been told before. "All in Her Head" by Dr. Elizabeth Comen explores the historical and ongoing mistreatment of women's bodies in medicine, a field traditionally dominated by male perspectives. Despite modern advancements, harmful stereotypes about female bodies persist. Dr. Comen, an oncologist and medical historian, uses her expertise to uncover overlooked aspects of women's healthcare, sharing stories from medical texts, interviews, and her own practice. This book aims to empower women with knowledge and advocate for better, more joyful healthcare, blending humor, wisdom, and scientific insight to reclaim women's medical history. 

  • “Go Figure! The astonishing science of the female body.”
    The book that tells you everything you need to know about the female body, and a whole lot more simply because it is interesting. When explained in an easy manner, science can really be for everyone and there is so much to gain by understanding how our bodies work. 

  • How Do You Feel?: One Doctor’s Search for Humanity in Medicine
    A moving memoir by psychiatrist Dr. Jessi Gold, who explores the hidden emotional and physical tolls of caregiving through her own experiences and those of four patients—a resident with OCD, a pregnant nurse with PTSD, a medical student with test anxiety, and an overwhelmed ER physician. Faced with a critical mistake, Jessi reevaluates her relentless commitment to others and the healthcare system's demands. By intertwining research, personal stories, and therapy insights, "How Do You Feel?" reflects on the importance of self-care for those dedicated to caring for others, revealing a universal message about maintaining our humanity in helping professions. 

  • Sex Cells: The Fight to Overcome Bias and Discrimination in Women’s Healthcare
    "Sex Cells" by Phyllis Greenberger highlights the ongoing struggle to ensure the scientific and medical communities recognize that women are not simply small men and need sex-specific research and treatment. The book details the efforts to achieve equitable treatment for women in medical research, emphasizing the importance of understanding sex and gender differences in health. Greenberger shares her 25-year journey, along with contributions from various experts, to advocate for research that includes female cells, lab animals, and humans. With a mix of humor and passion, this book is a compelling manifesto for those interested in health, women’s rights, and public health policy.

  • “Speaking While Female: 75 Extraordinary Speeches by American Women”
    This monumental collection assembles speeches by 75 American women of every background, race, and ethnicity — some whose names are recognized and others who are barely known. Some of the speeches in this collection have never been published; others not in more than a century. Arranged chronologically, from the Puritan era to the present, they demonstrate the crucial role women have played in the nation’s long struggle to live up to its ideals.

  • "Taking Care of You: The Empowered Woman's Guide to Better Health" 
    Is an easy-to-use and practical resource guide written for women, by women. Colorful illustrations and refreshingly supportive and jargon-free language help the reader better understand what can often be dense medical information. The book focuses on the current health landscape and 55 common medical conditions that impact women more than men, or differently than men. Each clinical chapter includes what the condition is, can it be prevented, how is it treated with differences related to sex, race/ethnicity, questions to ask your doctor, and pearls of wisdom from our clinical experts. "Taking Care of You" is an accessible guide to be shared between mother and daughter, sister, aunt, and grandmother — an essential resource for every woman, and those who love her.
