The production of this book was undertaken in an effort to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Women in Neurosurgery organization.  These memoirs/essays
and artwork carry startling insights. Individuals who
have experienced similar struggles will gain solace
from understanding that they are not alone.  All will
laugh and cry along with these heroic women who reached deep into themselves and created a
collection of heartfelt, insightful, inspired works of art.

In 2008, WINS committee authored an article addressing the barriers of recruiting and retaining women into neurosurgery. Read the article published in the Journal of Neurosurgery here.

Progress of women in neurosurgery by Robert F. Spetzler is a measured evaluation of the status of neurosurgery's advances in the recruitment and retention of female neurosurgeons. This article was published in the Asian Journal of Neurosurgery in 2011.
