Women in the health system: patients, providers, and programs

Front Cover
C. V. Mosby, 1980 - Health & Fitness - 329 pages
"The women's movement in the United States has fostered inquiry into many social, economic, and health aspects of the lives of American women. Questions of inequity and discrimination in opportunities for education and employment, in earnings, and in many other areas are being widely discussed. [This] book is an enlightening contribution to discussions and study of women and health. Here in a single source document is much of the available information on the present health status of women and on their relationships, as both consumers and providers of health care, to the health services delivery system. [It] offers historical perspective as well as current information and presents both with considerable objectivity." -- FOREWARD
