His and hers : male and female anatomy in anatomy texts for U.S. medical students, 1890-1989.
Much recent work on gender has emphasized how ideas of male and female differences underlie cultural assumptions about appropriate social relations, behavior, institutions and knowledge.
This study focusses on the specific ways that anatomy texts for medical students in the United States have presented male and female anatomy between 1890 and 1989, using both numerical data and analysis of textual examples from 31 texts.
Despite public debates about gender representation, anatomy texts have generally remained consistent in how « the » human body has been depicted in this century.
