Reproductive Health and Gender Equality offers a much needed empirical study of women''s reproductive health. The author challenges the prevailing bioscience and public health models by linking women''s reproductive health to gender equality measures and development policies. The results will be of interest to researchers, professionals and students interested in women''s health issues, gender/women''s studies and human rights.
