Complaints and Disorders: The Sexual Politics of Sickness, Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English. The Feminist Press, New York, 1973.
"The medical system is strategic for women's liberation. It is the guardian of reproductive technology- birth control, abortion, and the means for safe childbirth... But the medical system is also strategic to women's oppression. Medical science has been one of the most powerful sources of sexist ideology in culture. Justifications for sexual discrimination- in education, in jobs, in public life- must ultimately rest on the one thing that differentiates women from men: their bodies."- (from intro)
