Women's health movements, a global force for change, Meredeth Turshen - electronic bk

This book follows the implications of the changing landscape for women’s health and health care and their sexual and reproductive rights. In the latest national and international health policy developments, we are witnessing the effects of a series of concerted conservative attacks on women. Facing this onslaught, women’s health movements are using the new technologies of the Internet and social media and finding other novel ways to advance their rights and protest against attempts to roll back the gains they made in the last four decades. Detailed country case studies and discussions of topics ranging from violence against women, disability, and birth control, as well as abundant examples of women’s activism from all over the world make this account of women’s health movements a lively, informative, and compelling read
