Does this ever take me back. I read it in the mid-1970s and was never the same again.

No wonder the words woman and women have now become unsayable, unwritable. Only with those words can prose this real, this searing be produced.

The Second Wave. When women spoke the truth.

By 1800, fashion even dictated that upper and middle class women employ male “regular” doctors for obstetrical care – a custom which plainer people regarded as grossly indecent.

This helped answer a long standing wonder I had about women who choose male gynos. So started it as one of those silly rich people things to make themselves feel superior to the poors, like spices.

Thanks for the link, it was super interesting!!
