OB/GYN textbooks omit nerves and vasculature of the clitoris

This gap in education is a patient safety issue and gender inequality issue. I have been trying to email textbook authors, residency program directors, and professional organizations with minimal luck. I’d appreciate any advice or support people could offer. If I could just get this anatomy added to OB/GYN board exams, that would force a change nation-wide. But this would require women demanding it be considered important. Knowledge of this anatomy is important for understanding function and dysfunction and for safe surgery.

Gosh, I remember reading about this in Cosmopolitan in the 80s! Can’t believe it’s still the same...

Rubbish
Of course they do.
Can't comment on the states, which is where I suspect you're posting from.
