Owens explores the development of American Gynecology. To put it mildly, the history of American Gynecology has an extraordinary dark side. The pioneers of gynecology performed experimental surgeries and procedures on poor African American and Irish women without there consent. Owens has written a thoughtful and insightful history that reexamines these figures and their actions.
