Women make up 51 per cent of the population and are the biggest users of healthcare services - for themselves and as mothers and carers. But research shows that there are significant gender differences when it comes to men and women’s healthcare. Why is this the case? And what can be done?
Join award-winning health journalist Sarah Graham to learn about the systemic and deep-rooted sexism within medicine.
Meet the patients, doctors and campaigners who are standing up and fighting back; find practical tips on advocating for your own health; and discover what it will take to bridge the gender health gap.
You can buy copies of many of our speakers’ books from Fox Lane Books, a local independent bookseller and Festival partner. In some cases, author signed bookplates are available too.
