This collection brings together fourteen contributions by authors from around the globe. Each of the contributions engages with questions about how local and global bioethical issues are made to be comparable, in the hope of redressing basic needs and demands for justice. These works demonstrate the significant conceptual contributions that can be made through feminists' attention to debates in a range of interrelated fields, especially as they formulate appropriate responses to developments in medical technology, global economics, population shifts, and poverty.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Another FAB feast! This collection of thought-provoking essays advances feminist bioethics-and all bioethics. Its gems will be building blocks for further research and a wonderful resource for teaching. -- Laura Purdy, professor of philosophy and Ruth and Albert Koch Professor of Humanities at Wells College in Aurora, New York
The collection is thought provoking....and well worth reading....It is a valuable contribution in the battle for a socially just world. * Philosophy in Review, October 2006 *
In this collection, the editors have brought together an impressive range of international voices addressing the connections among feminism, human rights, and global development. The result is a fascinating and rigorous examination of the common ground between these three fundamental areas of bioethics. This collection demonstrates the significant contributions that feminist analysis can make to questions of human rights and development, and broadens the debate in important ways. Feminist ethics has much to offer, and much to gain from, dialogues of this nature. -- Wendy Rogers, associate professor of medical ethics and health law at Flinders University in Australia
