Women's Health and Social Work: Feminist Perspectives

Front Cover
Psychology Press, 1994 - Health & Fitness - 182 pages
In this new book, women lead the campaign to address long overlooked women’s issues in health care. The urgency mounts as the national debate on health care reform takes place. Social workers have a vital role to play in the effort to achieve adequacy and equity in women’s health care, and this new book will assist them in accomplishing that goal.

Women’s Health and Social Work provides insights into a range of women’s health needs and feminist perspectives for understanding and dealing with them. The contributing authors illuminate issues that affect women at different stages in the life span and from different cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.

With Women’s Health and Social Work, Miriam Meltzer Olson puts together the first collection that specifically addresses social work and women’s health. This singular contribution to literature in the social work field reveals the broad scope of important topics in women’s health care.
