ABSTRACT
The article discusses the intersection of slavery and the concept of race with gender to construct a notion of science and technology. It discusses the development of the medical specialty of gynecology in the U.S. Critical Race Feminist (CRF) Bioethics should reportedly be explored to address the need of telling the narratives of three enslaved African American women in order to point out the so-called objects of experimentation in medical history and reclaim their humanity to achieve cultural competency.
