A history of women healers by Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English. This is a fascinating study of the European history of women as healers from the Middle Ages through to the Twentieth century. The authors show how women's roles in health are inextricably linked to our oppression as women, to the deep-rooted institutionalised class system and to monopolies of knowledge. 

To know our history is to begin to see how to take up the struggle again.
