Book News Annotation:

Draws attention to social, cultural, and behavioral elements in women's health. Contributors raise questions about the directions currently being taken to improve women's health in the United States. Attention is paid to how race, class, gender, and culture shape and are shaped by treatment options and health care. Essays discuss reproductive health, mental health, violence, and treatment of stigmatized women, and demonstrate that women's health must be considered not only in terms of women's bodies, but in terms of entire communities.
