A young, white woman in her tender young adult years, such as I, and a middle-aged black man, such as he, had many dynamics and opinions to share, and the learning was immense and relentless. The study is well known, because of the tragedy it caused for many people and also because of the sheer lack of ethical consideration shown by the scientists concerned. Having spent a significant portion of her life, roughly twenty years, researching the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiments, Reverby is able to provide a more well-rounded view of the trials while simultaneously focusing on a few key individuals within the study. Sociologist is jailed for refusing to testify about research subject. A third example aroused much discussion among sociologists when it came to light.

The inhumane action of the researchers led to policies that protects against barbarous experiments. Therapeutic research is that carried out with the purpose of treating disease. It blights not only their lives but those of their children. But as a group both men and women with venereal disease were discriminated against.

In a study that began in of syphilis among African American men in Tuskegee, Alabama, government physicians decided not to give penicillin to the men after it was found that this drug would cure syphilis. Participants were not told their diagnosis. In addition, it provides a sort of regulatory framework which ensures that human participants in research are not exploited either physically or psychologically. In field research, anonymity must also be maintained, and aliases fake names should normally be used when the researcher reports what she or he has been observing. Six hundred poor — and mostly illiterate — African-American males, of whom were infected with syphilis, were monitored for 40 years.

Brieux was not entirely lacking in sympathy for women, in his depiction of the callousness of the Duponts towards the possible infection of the child's nurse, and in the last act in a 'case-study' of a young woman sexually exploited as a domestic servant by her master, turned out on becoming pregnant, forced into a life of shame, who claims 'These beastly men, they give you their foul diseases' but also adds 'I had my tit for tat'.
