Though we may no longer confine our understanding of women's health to reproduction and maternity care, women's health in Canada continues to be limited by knowledge gaps, political agendas, and fiscal restraints. This second edition of Women's Health provides a comprehensive picture of the state of women's health in Canada, tracing the emergence of the field and outlining some of the current challenges facing its advancement. The contributors-who include academics, health care professionals, and policy-makers-explore women's health in different social and geographical locations, the gendering of care work, and the ways in which research can influence health policy. Drawing on gender-based analysis and highlighting the diversity among women, this multidisciplinary collection illustrates the breadth of contemporary Canadian writing on women's health and calls for a renewed commitment to women's health advocacy. This revised edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect developments in research and recent changes in the social, political, and economic context. New chapters cover topics such as wait times, girls' health, and unpaid health care. Featuring questions for further thought and lists of recommended readings and websites, this unique text is a valuable resource for both students and researchers in the fields of women's studies, sociology, health sciences, and nursing.

Review:

I use this extraordinarily accessible book for its readability and relevance to my students' interests and career goals, particularly the section on gendered care work. Other major strengths of this excellent anthology include chapters on sexual and gender minority women and a keen intersectional analysis. I can't imagine teaching without it. - Kimberly A. Williams, Women's & Gender Studies, Mount Royal University "This textbook makes the theory-practice connection clear, and each chapter addresses or engages with policy in a meaningful way. The inclusion of policy-makers and advocates as authors is particularly interesting and unique. ... This is a very useful resource, which will speak to students in a variety of disciplines." - Amber Fletcher, Department of Sociology & Social Studies, University of Regina "This book offers a particularly accessible and informed perspective on a worthwhile topic. Its use of evidence is well balanced with an intent to bring forward the voices of women. ... This is a tremendous book, well structured, and easy to read." - Joyce Engel, Department of Nursing, Brock University
