Description - Gender, Work and Medicine by Elianne Riska
This text demonstrates the centrality of gender in medicine - both between and within the individual medical professions - doctors, nurses, midwives and others. A critical assessment of the historical development and present character of the gendered division of labour in medicine is provided. Drawing on accounts from different countries and different professional groups, the contributors examine the extent to which the division of labour is changing, the effect of such changes on the status of women within the medical professions, and the continued constraints on women achieving full equality. This study is suitable for professionals in medicine and nursing, students and academics in medical sociology, sociology of the professions and women's studies.
