"This handbook adopts a life-cycle approach to examine key milestones and events in women's sexual and reproductive health. Using a multi-disciplinary perspective, the contributors draw on psychology, sociology, medicine, public health, cultural studies, and women's studies. A feminist perspective underpins the chapters, and reproductive health is examined in the context of women's lives and relationships. The book also acknowledges the intersection of identity positions and their influence on women's health, including gender, culture, social class, sexuality, age, and relationship context. This is essential reading for scholars and students interested in women's reproductive health"-- Provided by publisher.
