Feminist Book Club: Witches, Midwives, and Nurses

Submitted by usedbooks_14 on Sun, 09/27/2020 - 5:52pm

Feminist Book Club is delighted to be talking about Witches, Midwives, and Nurses by Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English. The meeting will be held in the store and on Zoom at 7pm. Join us!

Witches, Midwives, and Nurses, first published by the Feminist Press in 1973, is an essential book about the corruption of the medical establishment and its historic roots in witch hunters. In this new edition, Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English have written an entirely new chapter that delves into the current fascination with and controversies about witches, exposing our fears and fantasies.

As we watch another agonizing attempt to shift the future of healthcare in the United States, we are reminded of the longevity of this crisis, and how firmly entrenched we are in a system that doesn't work.

They build on their classic expos on the demonization of women healers and the political and economic monopolization of medicine. This quick history brings us up-to-date, exploring today's changing attitudes toward childbirth, alternative medicine, and modern-day witches.
