Elizabeth Packard vs. The Mental Health System - Let's Just Take Out Their Ovaries

Elizabeth Packard vs. The Mental Health System - Let's Just Take Out Their Ovaries

It's an Andrew episode. He learned all about how poorly women were treated in the 1800's. Elizabeth Packard became the voice for women. She not only had to fight the oppression of men but she also took on the entire mental health system. If you have not heard of Elizabeth you will be amazed by what she accomplished despite all the pettiness shown to her and women of her time.


Here is an Amazon link to the book Andrew references in this episode. It is a great read! If you purchase it in any form through this link it helps support the podcast.
