AbstractEndometriosis, one of the many reproductive health related diseases that specifically impact female bodies, could be either less prevalent, or less excruciating in a society that integrates a feminist approach to health care. As one of the many women impacted by the disease, I could be living a less painful and distressing life. I would not be the one in the “one of ten women” who exist with an inferior quality of life due to the lack of knowledge and research surrounding women's health.

Women in Medicine: Excluding WomenManhertz, Natalia; The College at Brockport (2016-08-24)Throughout history, society has pushed women out of the public sphere of work and into the private sphere of home. The medical field is one example of this gender segregation of work. Even though the medical field today is not as male-dominated as it once was, different sub-specializations in medicine are gender segregated. My goal for this essay is to focus on gender segregation in the workplace to show how the field of medicine has been masculinized with a particular focus on the subspecialty area of surgery. This paper will discuss these two points from a personal point of view and explain how this affects me, being a woman of color who one day plans to be a part of the medical field. This research will look at the gender segregation of medicine and examine what factors, if any, are shifting to allow more women to enter male-dominated professions such as surgery.
Body Autonomy During Pregnancy: Where Did It Go?Ophardt, Brooke A.; The College at Brockport (2016-08-24)This paper takes a personal yet informative look at body autonomy during pregnancy, examining the laws that remove autonomy from pregnant women with a look at how that affects women overall. The paper uses feminist theory to examine how the commodification of reproduction has stripped women of their body autonomy during their pregnancies and argues how women throughout history have largely been valued only for reproductive purposes.
