Our bodies
Our voices
Our resilience


An authoritative hand scrawls illegible scribbles onto blank paper. Your gender, age, and prognosis become detached from the body. Impersonal, sterile, and sealed: this is your medical history.

Medical Herstory counteracts traditional healthcare methods by refusing to let women’s experiences be sanitized. Here, feminine presenting individuals share their harrowingly raw, honest, and embodied stories regarding health and wellness.

Despite popular beliefs, medicine is not a domain untouched by larger structures of sexism, racism, classism, and ableism. Instead, medical encounters can magnify such structures onto individual bodies.

This platform is a site for connection, criticism, and healing. It is a call to be heard, and a push for person-first healthcare.
