Description

Thinking Women and Health Care Reform in Canada explores why health care is a woman's issue and seeks to address gender equity in health services. Written by members of Women and Health Care Reform (WHCR), this collection establishes the importance of including gender in discussions and decisions surrounding health sector reform.

In twelve concise chapters, Thinking Women and Health Care Reform in Canada addresses a wide range of issues, including obesity, maternity care, mental health of health care workers, and private health insurance. This thought-provoking collection is an essential read for students and researchers in the fields of women's studies, health sciences, sociology, and nursing, as well as for anyone who is looking for a new picture of health care in Canada.

Editorial Reviews

"The topics are timely...the manuscript’s strength is in its thoughtful and careful analysis of the topics it covers. It would seem this strength is derived from the authors’ many years of experience engaged in health care activism, in thinking and in writing about these topics."— “Dr. Lynda Ross, Athabasca University
