This study arose from the need to develop a critical understanding of clinical gynecology and involved the use of sociological techniques to analyze medical discourse. One of the key findings was the central role played by violence in the clinic. The findings offer doctors and other health professionals the opportunity to reflect on their behaviour during interviews with patients. They also contribute to a richer, theoretical understanding of the role of gender violence within healthcare institutions that provide reproductive health services.
