Editorial Reviews

Review

Working at the intersection of race, class, gender, and health, Owens presents a crucial platform for future researchers. This an intensive and sometimes uncomfortable read., Sarasota Herald-Tribune

Deirdre Cooper Owens explores how 19th-century doctors on Southern plantations and in northern hospitals, both progressed medicine, and also solidified racialized stereotypes that have dictated treatment of patients for centuries, Bitch Magazine

Medical Bondage builds on several decades’ worth of excellent scholarship on the experiences of enslaved women, health, and medicine under American slavery, a literature that has explored white medicine’s commodification, exploitation, and racialization of the enslaved, as well as the autonomy, creativity, and resilience of black healers and sufferer. . . Indeed, the author’s brave, provocative, and tireless promotion of this troubling history is to be admired and respected., The Journal of African American History

Deirdre Cooper Owens has added a well-wrought book to the growing literature on the medical exploitation of African American girls and women. -- Lawrence B. Goodheart, Journal of American History

Book Description

How pioneering gynecologists promoted and exploited scientific myths about inferior races and nationalities
