Beginning with the ancient goddesses and the importance of legends, myths, and symbols, this book celebrates women in medicine from Ancient Egypt, Classical Greece, and Rome to the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and the present.

Trotula, Hildegard of Bingen, Wendy Savage, and Elizabeth, Countess of Kent are among the many unique healers finally recognized for their work. Documenting each woman's practices, achievements, and struggles, here at last is the definitive history of women's invaluable contribution to healing.

Informed by the author's understanding of the politics of medicine and fused with her appreciation of the powers of myth versus those of technology, this new reissue of the 1993 classic is an invaluable resource. Originally published by The Women's Press in 1993 (9780704343245).

Elisabeth Brooke qualified as a medical herbalist with the National Institute of Medical Herbalists in 1980 and trained as a psychosynthesis counselor at the Psychosynthesis and Education Trust in London. She also opened and ran a training clinic for herbal students in London and worked in private practice specializing in clients from the arts. At present she divides her time between Santo Domingo and London.
