The West has engaged in a war against women for thousands of years; women are history‟s most consistently oppressed group. The power to give life is a decidedly feminine undertaking, but in the war against women, men have dominated and have exalted the power to take life as the ultimate power, hence
our wars against each other, mother earth, our bodies, etc. Healing the human body is the province of the feminine principle, but men have taken it over. In a might-makes-right world, the mightiest rule.
Historically, women have dispensed most health care, but it was usually done for family members, and those women were not financially compensated. Even when saint-like figures such as Florence Nightingale brought women into the modern healing profession, along with the principle of sanitation, they initially had to work for free, and had to be completely subservient to the male doctors. In the standard, male-written histories of medicine, women are so scarce that they stand out as remarkable when mentioned.[11] There are debates about how many women died in the witch hunts (likely several tens of thousands, at least – and about 75% of all witch executions); how many were healers and midwives is also a source of debate, but what is not debatable is that when the Catholic Church‟s ideological dominance eventually gave way to the rise of Western science, the baton passed from one male-dominated establishment to another. When science rose in the West, generally considered to have begun with Copernicus‟ heliocentric theory, women were conspicuously absent. That was partly due to women often being forbidden formal education. Western religion and science were united in their misogyny. The conquest-of-nature attitude that still dominates Western thinking also reflected the denigration of all things feminine.

Timeline
 
This essay is overflowing with names, dates and events, and takes an
iconoclastic look at today‟s medical establishment and how it came to be, while
also arguing that legitimate alternative paradigms exist, and far preferable to
today‟s.
Early readers informed me that it could be an overwhelming amount ofinformation to digest, as well as emotionally trying. This timeline is designed tomake the reading experience easier, so readers can refer to names, dates andevents in the larger scheme of this essay. The early human data is controversial
in many quarters, and this timeline hews more toward today‟s orthodox theories.
 The early population estimates, until the modern age, are probably within 25% ofthe actual population, at least as far as orthodoxy is concerned. The timeline isbroken into two pieces, to 1491, directly below, and from 1492 onward.There are far more links to this medical essay from the 1492 onward piece.This timeline is an abbreviated version of the site timeline. 
This timeline relates to the rise of today‟s
Western/American medical establishment andits prevailing paradigm

I read this for the first time over a year ago and at that time was totally unaware of "things". Since then, I have delved into this "fraud" extensively. I have most recently learned that the author "the brilliant Wade Fraser" has also updated his original essay AND has been very busy publishing additional work. I highly recommend this indepth, well researched work as "we all need to know" this
