Description

Women's health has traditionally been examined from a gynocentric or medical perspective as women have been acknowledged primarily for their reproductive function. However, issues surrounding women's health are broader than this and should be studied in the context of women's place in a patriarchal society at local, national and global levels. In this subject students have the opportunity to explore issues related to women's health in the context of a social model of health, and have the opportunity to test the theoretical claims of the subject in various clinical and women's health service environments.

Typical availability
