Summary
Linking the policies of international development with women's situations, the theories and research into women's health with the lives of individuals, the book offers a broad and cogent analysis of the web of factors that are relevant to health. The author reveals connections, associations, and interactions that escape a more narrow attempt to isolate remediable causes; she also makes a powerful case for an international feminist agenda on health which is attentive to local cultural idioms. The book concludes with a series of recommendations for improving women's health. Including a wealth of data on women's health around the world as well as a sustained consideration of methodologies for researching both empowerment and health, this is an important book for all concerned with health and development policy, health care providers, and health researchers and evaluators
