About this title


Drawing on the actual experiences of women, WomanSafeHealth: The Antidote to Status Quo Healtch Care  uses cartoons and humor together with analysis and compassion to reveal what it means to meet a woman's health care needs. Status Quo Health Care is a term coined at WomanSafeHealth to describe the poisoned care most woman experience --- hurried, depersonalized, cold, disrespectful, profit-driven --- care that neglects her individual story and choices. At WomanSafeHealth each woman is a person, not a disease; a client, not a number. She is the focus, and her health care team is her consultant. Prescribing self-awareness, care analysis and personal empowerment as antidotes to Status Quo Health Care, Elizabeth affirms what every woman already knows: safety and respect must be the core of health care.

From the Author:

This book is the culmination of my professional career as a woman and physician caring for other women. The book proposes a different model of health care which treats each woman with the utmost respect and focuses on her specific needs and herstory, including her herstory of violence. Status Quo Health Care, SQHC, does just the opposite: treating individuals as a herd and ignoring a woman's specific herstory, interrupting her and often completely silencing her. One of the antidotes to SQHC, in addition to WomanSafeHealth's guiding principles, is Woman Advocacy, which includes taking a woman advocate to all health care appointments.
