Contributors discuss the differences between women within and across cultures and how local attitudes and traditions can affect the prevention of, or vulnerability to, HIV / AIDS.


Provides a decidedly feminist perspective on the issue of HIV / AIDS. The editors have gathered an eclectic group of contributors, balanced along the lines of gender and discipline. All chapters are well-written, provocative, and challenging. . . . Two major perspectives are represented by the book as a whole: health care professional and personal lived-experienced. . . . Throughout, gender inequities about this unique disease and its management are addressed in powerful ways.
