Abstract

Throughout modern history, women have suffered disproportionately from the effects of dangerous and defective drugs and medical devices. Women take more medications than men, respond differently to them, and are more likely to suffer adverse drug events. Because of recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings, women injured or killed by dangerous drugs and medical devices may not be able to hold these manufacturers accountable.
