I (Dutch medical sociologist) do research on 'pelvic examination' as
experienced by women and health workers, worldwide.
I am looking for resources, references at the intersection of crosscultural
medicine / health / sexuality / gynaecology / reproductive rights / medical
anthropology / midwifery that might contribute to a more profound insight in
people's different perceptions of this 'normal' medical procedure.

Any people outside Europe who have the same field of interest?
