Walking Out on the Boys
Conley made headlines when she resigned from Stanford University as the first women in the country named full professor of neurosurgery. Here she tells the story of her training and career in a profession that is dominated by white males and systematically treats women as inferior, and how she came to the realization that nothing she could do would ever admit her to the club. She ponders the implications for the future of the medical profession. No index or bibliography. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
