Description

Women are our main health care providers, both in the health care systems and in their families. They are also the most frequent users of the health care system. However, most health research is geared to the male as the standard patient. There has been a need for women to become more vocal about health care, and to be better informed. Consumers of health care are now required to be advocates for themselves and their families.
Women's Voices in Health Promotion is a path-breaking book. It empowers the reader by providing her with a comprehensive collection of feminist perspectives on women's health promotion. Readers will find in this volume a clear exposition of the state of feminist theory of women's health promotion, a guide to current knowlege, a participatory action research framework and examples of its local implementation for extending our understanding and capabilities.
