To Whom Do Experts Testify?

This paper attempts to critique texts of medical jurisprudence from the perspective of gender concerns. The obvious and stated biases which are found in sections on sexual offences, the implicit bias by exclusions while dealing with issues of bride burning and wife murder, and the deliberate silence regarding malpractices which thrive on societal prejudices against women in chapters of medical ethics are the focus of this essay. It is clear that feminist jurisprudence cannot be superimposed upon the pre-existing edifice structured on gender bias. Gender concerns have to be woven into the doctrine of medical jurisprudence from its base.
