It pushes the frontiers of our thinking about the barriers to justice and also provides compelling contemporary material which can - and should - be marshalled to support a right-to-health approach to gender and health."Paul HuntUN Special Rapporteur on the Right to the Highest Attainable Standard of Health (2002-2008)"This volume is a unique source of knowledge! inspiration and practical recommendations that go beyond the scope of many previous publications on gender and health. It brings together the evidence base! reflects on and synthesizes key messages! and crosses the needed extra mile to tie research to policy. An extraordinary mix of experiences and backgrounds have shaped it to be truly special.
