AUT Sir Paul Reeves Building, (Foyer, Level 1),
WG Building, 55 Wellesley St
Dr. Ron Jones was a junior obstetrician & gynaecologist at the time of Dr. Herb Green’s ‘unfortunate experiment’. In 1984, with two senior doctors, he published the scientific paper that exposed the horrifying truth & led to the Cartwright enquiry. He tells his own story & the story of professional arrogance & the unnecessary suffering of countless women.
Join Otago University Press, the Faculty of Health & Environmental Sciences at AUT, & The Women’s Bookshop to celebrate the publication of this crucial book.
