Barker, Kristin
Work and Occupations: An International Sociological Journal, v25 n2 p229-55 May 1998
Battles between the American Medical Association and the American Medical Women's Association over the 1921 Act for the Promotion of Welfare and Hygiene of Maternity and Infancy were gendered intra- and interprofessional struggles among physicians, midwives, nurses, and social workers. The conflicts illustrate the gendered nature of professions. (SK)
