Uncovering Gaps in Maternal Care with Anushay Hossain

The health care experiences of many women, especially women of color, are untold. In her book, “The Pain Gap: How Sexism and Racism in Healthcare Kill Women”, author and journalist Anushay Hossain shares her own trauma of giving birth, and explores the eye-opening experiences of many women – who were unheard and subjected to systemic sexism and structural racism. In honor of 2022’s International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, Priya Bathija, vice president of AHA’s Strategic Initiatives chats with Anushay to discuss her inspiration and research behind the book, and ways we can empower women to share their stories in order to revolutionize maternal health care.
