We are still only beginning to understand the increasingly complex set of interdependencies among gender, health, and globalization. Globalization, Women, and Health in the 21st Century brings together a diverse group of distinguished scholars and activists to explore the new risks and freedoms for men and women in a global society and their health determinants. They map the gendered impact of these processes and present a health landscape that goes beyond nation states into trans-border flows of capital, people, goods, and services. Each chapter begins with a global analysis of specific trends followed by ?in perspective? pieces by authors from contrasting disciplines and geographies. Given rapid changes in global society through globalization, this book serves as an important resource to reiterate the place of health and gender at the forefront of discussion.
