Here's an example of feminists jumping upon an unproven theory and promoting another "Informational Cascade" that ended up needlessly costing the lives of women...
Here's an article about the book "Overtreated:"
...concerning the aggressive treatment for breast cancer, Brownlee concludes (p. 141):
...insurers unwittingly made the treatment a feminist cause by refusing to pay for it. Breast cancer advocacy groups...threw their weight behind the embattled women...When transplanters like Peters testified in court that the procedure was established practice, when in fact it was not, they stoked the perception among patients that high-dose chemo offered a shot at cure.
Hope Rugo stopped performing transplants on breast cancer patients in 1999...she said, "We believed in it passionately. Now I think about all the women who died during transplant, who would have lived much longer without it."
Doctors and hospitals did not wait for clinical trial results before embracing what turned out to be an ineffective, painful, and debilitating procedure.
It's so easy to manipulate these foolish activist feminists into believing unproven theories as facts, and getting them to lobby for "solutions" that make problems worse than they were before they got involved.
