Gender Bias in Human Anatomy Textbook Illustrations.
Giacomini, M.; And Others
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v10 n4 p413-20 Dec 1986
Surveyed anatomy texts currently in use in a major western medical school. In text sections dealing with standard (nongender-specific) anatomy, male subjects were shown in 64 percent of the illustrations in which gender was discernible, females in ll percent, and gender-neutral representations, 25 percent. Females and males were represented approximately equally in chapters on urogenital (gender-specific) anatomy. (Author/KS)
