The Women’s Healthcare Gap

Last Saturday, a group of Lib Dem Women attended a conference in Oxford to discuss the women’s healthcare gap.

Despite working in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sector for 20 years, it was not a concept I was very familiar with until recently. During lockdown, I read Caroline Criado-Perez’s ground-breaking book, Invisible Women, which spelled out the issue using examples of how women’s health is put at risk because medical research has been dominated by men and male biology. Since then, I have had personal experience of the issue.
