About

Sex in Education; or, A Fair Chance For Girls was a misogynist pseudoscience book written by Harvard professor Edward Clarke, M.D. and published in 1873. In it, Clarke argues that women who attempt education are risking the health of their womb, and that therefore educating women is dangerous.

It was thoroughly debunked by American physician Mary Corinna Putnam Jacobi [W] in her essay "The Question of Rest for Women during Menstruation", which won Harvard's Boylston Prize in 1876.
