Re: International Women's Day 2016/2017

I have linked to some stuff on the incredible gender bias in healthcare before.

Here's a recent BuzzFeed piece, with 29 accounts of specific cases in which women's health concerns and pain were dismissed out of hand--and some of the indelible, lifelong negative consequences of said dismissal.

This is not new, and while it's more prevalent among male health providers, even female doctors and nurse practitioners have been indoctrinated into dismissing female pain as exaggerated. We are expected to soldier on, regardless, and we often do, because we also, often, have no choice.

But the fact that we take it doesn't alleviate the responsibility of those causing harm by dismissing our voices and our knowledge of our own bodies.
