Formamide has a variety of uses, including as a softener for paper, gums, and glues. This report details the study of the effects of formamide on male and female rats and mice to identify potential toxic or cancer-related hazards. Solutions containing formamide in deionized water were deposited directly into the stomachs of male and female rats and mice. Groups of 50 animals received 20, 40, or 80 milligrams of formamide per kilogram body weight 5 days per week for 2 years; groups of animals receiving water alone served as the control groups. At the end of the study, tissues from more than 40

Wyeth-14,643 is a chemical that was developed by the pharmaceutical industry to lower serum cholesterol. It is not used in clinical applications. This study examined the effects of Wyeth-14,643 on rats, mice, & hamsters because it was known that this chemical promotes the production of peroxisomes, organelles that contain a variety of enzymes involved in metabolism of lipids & cholesterols. Results show that exposure to Wyeth-14,6453 caused changes in the livers of male rats, mice, & hamsters, including increased liver weights, increases in cytoplasmic alteration of the liver, & some liver foc

Today's patriarchal societies have their roots in antiquity, a time when matrilineal societies gradually gave way to ancient civilizations in which men were granted more and more importance and powerand women were made not only subordinate, but also gradually separated from realms of the "male." In Closing the Gap,, Allerd Stikker argues that the male/female duality we still perceive has resulted in a loss of coherence and integrity for all peopleand that only the unity and interdependence of the sexes can preserve a sustainable human society on our planet.

This collection of essays takes the reader from the early 19th century struggle between female midwives and male physicians right up to the late 20th century emergence of professionally trained women physicians vying for a place in the medical hierarchy. The bitter conflict for control of birthing and other aspects of domestic health care between female lay healers, particularly midwives, and the emerging male-dominated medical profession is examined from new perspectives.

Limited access is the first hurdle faced by women seeking industrial jobs in science and engineering. While progress has been made in this area in recent years, common recruitment and hiring practices that make extensive use of traditional networks often overlook the available pool of women. Once on the job, many women find paternalism, sexual harassment, allegations of reverse discrimination, different standards for judging the work of men and women, lower salary relative to their male peers, inequitable job assignments, and other aspects of a male-oriented culture that are hostile to women.
