REALITY CHECK: MONTGOMERY INFLUENCERS OFFER

PERSPECTIVE ON COVID-19 VACCINES

FEBRUARY 12, 2021

Informed decision-making was not an option for the enslaved women J. Marion Sims ruthlessly experimented on. But Michelle Browder, a social justice entrepreneur and local tour guide who also works with kids in underserved communities, is trying to subvert the narrative that elevated Sims to be “the father of gynecology.” Alongside artists and activists, Browder recently unveiled plans to honor three women subjected to Sims exploitation: Anarcha, Betsey, and Lucy will be memorialized as "the mothers of gynecology," with a 15-foot public monument in downtown Montgomery. The goal, Browder says, is to tell these women’s stories and “shine a light on ongoing racial disparities in the health care industry today.”
