The History of Women’s Pain Management and Gender Bias in Medicine
Thursday 11 August, 18:00 - 19:00, Online: Zoom
Audience: 16-29 years
In this workshop, Medical Herstory offers a historical perspective into how gender bias influences health experiences and medical care, with a focus on women’s pain (including childbirth). Through patient experience case studies, interactive trivia, and group discussions, we will address the implicit and institutional biases that have historically influenced women’s experiences of seeking and receiving care, and explore how to overcome these barriers.
The workshop will include discussions on racism, sexism, medical dismissal and discrimination, in addition to an exploration of societal and gender norms and factors influencing women’s health.
This workshop has been organised by the museum’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Group.
