The Libertine | 402 E 9th St
Complimentary snacks and beverages for purchase will be available
Jennifer Block is an independent journalist focused on health, gender, and politics. During the evening's reading, she will share excerpts of her award-winning book
Everything Below the Waist, which explores how medicine has failed to overcome its patriarchal and paternalistic origins, as women are disproportionately subjected to unnecessary tests, treatments, and surgeries; vulnerable to "obstetric violence" in the delivery room; and yet unable to access effective treatments for pelvic pain and endometriosis.
