MEDIA REVIEWS
"Oral histories of nine women physicians document the female experience in 20th-century medical practice, integrating historical narration, editorial summation, and personal testimony of women physicians.... The book approaches significant feminist and political issues in a highly readable fashion ... full women emerge, displaying varying backgrounds and choices. An introductory essay offers a superb historical encapsulation of the professionalization of American medicine and women's concomitant efforts to reestablish a place for themselves within that formal--and uninviting--setting. Highly recommended for college and university collections."-Choice
