SIM Ep 318 Chops 139: Pain and Prejudice with Gabrielle Jackson

Journalist Gabrielle Jackson’s personal dealings with endometriosis led her to explore how women – historically and through to today – are underserved, sometimes fatally, by the systems that are supposed to keep us healthy. The resulting book, Pain And Prejudice: A Call To Arms For Women And Their Bodies, reveals how there’s very little research into women’s bodies and therefore medicine quite often gets it wrong or shrugs its shoulders and calls us hysterical. 

Gabrielle chats to Mickey about how we got here, what it means and where we go next. There's hope and power in collective anger, people!
