About this title


In "Women, Medicine and Health", Ann Oakley brings together the best of her essays on the sociology of women's health. Mixing 14 new articles with other pieces, she focuses on four major themes: the professional role of women within the health service; motherhood and maternity care; medical technology and women; and the methodology of research. Oakley combines serious academic discourse from a feminist sociological perspective with a practical understandng of what it is to be a woman facing the often impersonal world of 20th-century medicine.

Ann Oakley (born 1944) is a distinguished British sociologist, feminist, and writer. She is Professor and Founder-Director of the Social Science Research Unit at the Institute of Education, University of London and in 2005 partially retired from full-time academic work to concentrate on her

University taking her BA in 1965, having married fellow future academic Robin Oakley the previous year. In the next few years Oakley wrote scripts for children's television and wrote numerous short stories and had two novels rejected by publishers.
