An enigmatically titled book of essays on women's rights by the American surgeon, abolitionist, prohibitionist, and prisoner of war, who remains the only woman to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor. Medical content in this collection primarily concerns the impact of the restrictive clothing of the time of women's health--a topic that Walker crusaded against by wearing clothing of her own design, or mens' clothing.
