dc.description.abstractMedical Bondage explores how, in the nineteenth century, experimental surgeries on enslaved and laboring women enabled the rise of American gynecology as a medical specialty, and shaped our understanding of race. Merging women’s, medical, and social history, the book makes Black and Irish women's lives—not just their bodies—part of an origins story of American medicine (one that has largely been told with an exclusive focus on white male historical actors).
