Experts say feminist dogma helped tie the hands of women's health care.

New research indicates there are crucial health differences between the sexes. According to the Society for Women's Health Research, women react differently to medications, are more vulnerable to some diseases and may have different symptoms.

Dr. Linda Flower of the Christian Medical Association said gender-based medicine is something new and should be explored to help physicians better take care of patients.

"A lot of the studies that have been done that say 'You need this type of thing,' to prevent one thing in men may not actually translate the same with women, so it's very important that we continue this kind of research," Flower said.

For example, chest pains can indicate a heart attack in men, but women could experience flu-like symptoms.

Dr. Janice Crouse, who heads the Beverly LaHaye Institute at Concerned Women for America, said it's good that the information is finally getting out that men and women are not the same.

"These differences are very significant—and profound—and women had best be aware of those differences, and doctors had better be aware of these differences," Crouse said.

Bridget Maher, an analyst at the Family Research Council, blames feminists for throwing medical researchers off the trail of gender differences.

"If we're different biologically and emotionally, we're likely to handle these diseases differently," Maher said.

Feminists claim differences between men and women are socially constructed.
