News Round Up Sunday Morning Medicine By Jacqueline Antonovich • September 9, 2018 Sharing TwitterFacebook A weekly check-up of gender, medicine, and history in the news Finding Hope. A history of the clitoris. A brief history of the RV. The hiphop archive at Harvard. Spreading the news of yellow fever. The origin of the word “quarantine.” The long history of the genderless “they.” A short history of America’s “tamale wars.” It’s time for a national museum of disability. The most controversial comic strip of the 1950s. The case of the stolen Wizard of Oz ruby slippers. The women who stormed a men-only pub in 1973. The girdle-inspired history of the very first spacesuits. The searing photos that helped end child labor in America. Before parental “screen time” panic, there was radio panic. Sex, steroids, and Arnold: the story of the gym that shaped America.
Thank you for this. So many of these are behind paywalls! (Or, at least, the ones that looked most interesting to me were behind paywalls.)
