What’s Current: Women’s heart disease symptoms are different from men’s, and too often missed

What’s Current is Feminist Current’s daily news roundup.

  • Different heart attack symptoms show up for women, and so are often missed, though women are twice as likely as men to develop fatal heart complications from stress.
  • Women in medicine are having their own #MeToo outpouring.
  • Unequal housework sharing can destroy heterosexual relationships, even as women suffer so much guilt over housework that it harms their health.
  • Angela Saini, author of the book, Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong — And the New Research that’s Rewriting the Story, takes apart sexist assumptions prevalent in scientific research into the differences between men and women.
  • The apology of a prominent, male director for the sexual abuse of actresses has encouraged the growing trickle of #MeToo revelations in South Korea.
