📒Women S Health Care ✍ Carol S. Weisman
📝Women s Health Care Book Synopsis : The fact that women experience the health care system differently than men is as issue of increasing importance to health professionals as well as the general public. Yet, while women's health problems have received unprecedented attention in recent years, the unique relationship between women and health care institutions remains little understood. In Women's Health Care: Activist Traditions and InstitutionalChange, Carol Weisman examines the nature of women's health care today and how U.S.women—as both providers and consumers of health care—are seeking to change health care institutions and policy. Using a sociological perspective, Women's Health Care: Activist Traditions and Institutional Change critically examines contemporary assumptions about the health care of women in the U.S. and presents the basis for a policy agenda to improve the health care of women. The book assesses and synthesizes existing information on the state of women's health care while also presenting new data. Topics addressed include the historical, theoretical, and empirical: gender differences in health and health care; the multiplicity of providers from whom women receive health care; the need to integrate reproductive health care and other components of primary care; such new organizational forms as women's health centers; and financing.

📒Ancient Bodies Modern Lives ✍ Wenda Trevathan, Ph.D.
📝Ancient Bodies Modern Lives Book Synopsis : Winner of the 2011 W.W. Howells Book Award of the American Anthropological Association How has bipedalism impacted human childbirth? Do PMS and postpartum depression have specific, maybe even beneficial, functions? These are only two of the many questions that specialists in evolutionary medicine seek to answer, and that anthropologist Wenda Trevathan addresses in Ancient Bodies, Modern Lives. Exploring a range of women's health issues that may be viewed through an evolutionary lens, specifically focusing on reproduction, Trevathan delves into issues such as the medical consequences of early puberty in girls, the impact of migration, culture change, and poverty on reproductive health, and how fetal growth retardation affects health in later life. Hypothesizing that many of the health challenges faced by women today result from a mismatch between how their bodies have evolved and the contemporary environments in which modern humans live, Trevathan sheds light on the power and potential of examining the human life cycle from an evolutionary perspective, and how this could improve our understanding of women's health and our ability to confront health challenges in more creative, effective ways.

📒What Would Marilyn Say ✍ Diane Vines
📝What Would Marilyn Say Book Synopsis : Imagine if Marilyn Monroe had survived that fateful day in August 1962. Would she have turned her life around, stopped drinking and kicked the pills? As a woman revered for her embodiment of "woman-ness," Marilyn's perspective on contemporary women's health issues would fascinate readers from multiple generations. What Would Marilyn Say? Supporting Women to Health and Happiness is a first-person narrative with a "virtual" Marilyn as an observer in a group of women returning to college. Their weekly gatherings are filled with topical conversation about life, health and happiness. They discuss issues ranging from menstruation to menopause, and depression to dieting, and Marilyn comments to the reader about the group discussion.
📒Women S Health And Social Change ✍ Ellen Annandale
📝Women s Health and Social Change Book Synopsis : Shortlisted for the BSA Sociology of Health and Illness Book Prize 2009 Traditional distinctions between the experiences of women and men are breaking down and being reconfigured in new, more complex ways. The long-established life expectancy gap between men and women appears to be closing in many affluent societies. Many men appear to be far more ‘body and health conscious’ than they ever were in the past and there are perceptible changes in women’s ‘health behaviours’, such as increases in cigarette smoking and alcohol consumption. Ellen Annandale provides a comprehensive and persuasive analysis of the contemporary social relations of gender and women’s health, arguing that the once all important sex/gender distinction fosters an undue separation between the social and the biological whereas it is their interaction and flexibility that is important in the production of health and illness. New theoretical tools are needed in a world where the meaning and lived experience of biological sex and of social gender, as well as the connections between them, are far more fluid. This book takes a step forward, outlining what an adequate feminist analysis of women’s health might look like. Women’s Health and Social Change will be of interest to academics and students working in sociology, women’s studies, gender studies, social medicine, social policy, nursing and midwifery.
