Women's Health: New Frontiers in Advocacy & Social Justice Research
Combine advocacy with community based participatory research to help those who can’t help themselves
Recent natural, man-made, and health-related threats to our well-being have created a need for researchers to develop new interventions to help the marginalized populations of the world who are most affected by these threats. Women’s Health: New Frontiers in Advocacy & Social Justice Research explores the importance of intervention efforts when the researcher takes on the role of advocate to represent those who can’t represent themselves. This unique book examines how the marginalization of community groups, including refugee women, rural women, and Indigenous women, affects their access to the programs and services they need in Australia, New Zealand, and the United States.
Women’s Health: New Frontiers in Advocacy & Social Justice Research looks at different levels of community preparation in the research process, examining implementations of the CBPR (Community Based Participatory Research) models that are specifically tailored to the needs of particular communities, including a project on cervical cancer initiated by the Indigenous women of Australia, and a five-year study of Type 2 diabetes by Hispanic women and researchers in the Western United States. The book’s articles—contributed by academics, practitioners, and researchers—focus primarily on the concept that rigorous research can be conducted while still attending to the needs of community members through a more action-oriented advocacy that promotes the special interests of those members.
