Contributors from the Boston Women's Health Collective note that this volume incorporates 30 years of women's movement activism and "... places its discussions in the contexts of class, ethnic, and other dimensions of diversity among women, as well as societal imbalances ...." From an interdisciplinary approach, Ratcliff (U. of Connecticut) and contributors' 34 previously published essays criticize the biomedical model, and they discuss such factors as power and the clinical setting, occupational health, reproductive technology, women as health care providers, and online resources.
