Sidelined explores the barriers women face in getting the best medical care. It’s sometimes so difficult for women to get an accurate diagnosis and the medical community often treats women differently from men. Even in 2021, gender bias still persists. Sadly, some barriers come from women themselves. Women often put their own health last, behind the needs of their families and illness often makes some women feel guilty for becoming ill in the first place which can lead them to make decisions they later regret. Her research revealed how conflicted many women are about the medical decisions they make. After extensive interviews and research, the book highlights her findings and includes a valuable resource directory that offers a variety of services to help women decide the best path to follow.
