What are the issues at stake in women's health and local political activism across the globe? In this major analysis of women's empowerment and its relationship to health, Jane Stein looks at the factors that determine success in the fight for better conditions, redistribution of power and control of resources. Linking the policies of international development with women's situations, the theories and research into women's health with the lives of individuals, this study offers a broad and cogent analysis of the web of factors that are relevant to health, and reveals connections, associations, and interactions that escape a more narrow attempt to isolate remediable causes. This important book is relevant to anyone interested in issues around health care, and states the case for an international feminist agenda attentive to local cultural idioms.
