Bring your favorite drinks or snacks. Zoom video is optional! This will be an informal, relaxed, and nourishing session. You will have an opportunity chat with other attendees on Zoom.
For this month’s FemTech Focus Book Club we’ll be discussing Unwell Women: Misdiagnoses and Myth in A Man-Made World by Elinor Cleghorn.
Elinor Cleghorn has a background in feminist culture and history, and her critical writing has been published in several academic journals. She received her PhD in humanities and cultural studies in 2012 around the time she became an “unwell woman”. She was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease after a long period of being told her symptoms were anything from psychosomatic to a possible pregnancy. As Elinor learned to live with her unpredictable disease she turned to history for answers, and found an enraging legacy of suffering, mystification, and misdiagnosis that she shares in this book.
IMPT: Please register for the event on eventbrite.
Day: Last Wednesday of every month
Time: 4PM PT/6PM CT/7PM ET
Event Format: Join the event via Zoom. Hosts, Susan and Karen, will lead the discussion into an open session where you can ask questions and engage with other attendees.
