Medical gaslighting and discrimination are the reality of many of the 190 million people around the world suffering from endometriosis. Journalist Tracey Lindeman knows it all too well. Decades of suffering from endo propelled the creation of BLEED—part memoir, part investigative journalism and all scathing indictment of how the medical system fails patients. Through extensive interviews and research, BLEED tracks the modern endo experience to the origins of medicine and how the system gained its power by marginalizing women. Using an intersectional lens, BLEED dives into how the system perpetuates misogyny, racism, classism, ageism, transphobia, fatphobia and other prejudices to this day.
