A timely, powerful look at how our culture treats--or mistreats--the health concerns of women. Almost all health research is still performed on men, meaning thousands of treatments and diagnoses are designed for male bodies only. Meanwhile, women feel dismissed at the doctor's office, their concerns seen as false or exaggerated. Doctors who do focus on women's health are penalized financially, as procedures performed on men pay more.
