Witches, Midwives, and Nurses: A History of Women Healers

by Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English

The demonization of badass women proves to be a historical trend, bred from the reeking loins of male fear. Witches, Midwives, & Nurses explores the tumultuous timeline tiptoed along by the almighty lady healers, following the likes of both local saviors and castrated mystics. Medical madness, corruption, and witchery set the tone for this riveting read. A seriously worthwhile supplement to your blah history textbook.
