On today’s episode, Kimberlé and a group of leading champions for equitable healthcare take us behind the “white coat” of medical racism, and explore its disproportionate impact on Black women and girls. Guests share their own stories being mistreated and ignored as patients, and reflect on the struggles they’ve endured as Black woman doctors working in a medical system with roots in eugenics and racialized violence. The conversation analyzes the lessons learned from the tragic case of Dr. Susan Moore, examines how the experiences of Black women in healthcare relate to historical racism and sexism, and asks what it would take to deconstruct the misogynoir that “lurks behind the white coat.” With: Dr. Karen Scott, epidemiologist, educator and obstetric doctor; Dr. Gail Wyatt, professor at UCLA, psychologist, and board certified sex therapist; Dr. Alisha Liggett, board certified family medicine doctor with a clinical practice based in New York City; Dr. Joia Crear Perry, the founder and president of the National Birth Equity Collaborative. Hosted by Kimberlé Crenshaw (@sandylocks) Produced and edited by Julia Sharpe-Levine This episode was co-produced by Amarachi Anakaraonye Supported provided by Rebecca Scheckman, Destiny Spruill, and the African American Policy Forum Music by Blue Dot Sessions Follow us at @intersectionalitymatters, @IMKC_podcast
