Learn how to navigate a broken healthcare system.

"I told my doctors about my pain for years, but they told me it was all in my head..."

"My doctor said I needed a hysterectomy to relieve my symptoms that I was sure were just normal menopause. Unfortunately, I agreed to the surgery anyway. Why did I agree to that?"

"If men had cramps, they'd have cured this by now..."

These and countless other comments from women who've suffered at the hands of the healthcare industry are frighteningly common, but they don't have to be.

Sidelined describes how our healthcare system has marginalized women and made it seemingly impossible for them to take control over their own healthcare. But what's behind this nationwide medical crisis?

In Sidelined, writer and researcher Susan Salenger explains why women are misdiagnosed more often than men, and why their symptoms often go unrecognized or are even disputed.

This book teaches women how to ask the right questions to get the care they deserve. It equips readers with the knowledge, language, and tools they need to overcome the gender bias in the medical industry and get the best healthcare possible.
