Women in Practice
Asian Medicines have a predominantly male heritage – or so the recorded histories tell us. This panel provides an opportunity for contributors to explore women’s part in contemporary practice and / or women’s participation and contribution to the development of Asian medicines. Or how the expansion of Asian medicines outside Asia is being driven by women as consumers. Is there gender-shaping in how traditional medicines are being globalised?
The panel will be chaired by Dr Sue Cochrane whose contribution will be titled: Ageing in Practice: the experiences of older women working in Chinese medicine practice
