Geographies of women's health: Place, diversity and difference

Isabel Dyck, Nancy Davis Lewis, Sara McLafferty

Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook


This international collection explores the relationships between society, place, gender and health, and how these play out in different parts of the world. The chapters work together in examining the complex layering of social, economic and political relations that frame women's health. The authors demonstrate that women's health needs to be understood 'in place' if gains are to be made in improving women's health and health care.
