In her third year of medical training -- discouraged by how little focus there was on caring -- a young woman was faced with a decision: she could throw her hands up and quit or she could risk speaking up and work toward change. She decided to send out a call (through the Canadian Women's Health Network) asking women to share their experiences of health care and caring. Her e-mail inbox immediately overflowed with stories from women across Canada. Together, this amazing group of women wrote Women Who Care.
