Overview

The increased attention currently being paid to women's reproductive health issues has produced a corresponding interest in the role that communication plays in promoting better health care. Groundbreaking and comprehensive, this book is the first systematic examination of the major types and forms of messages about women's reproductive health - medical, social scientific and public - and the degree to which these messages compare with and contradict each other. Within the broad framework of communication, a range of women's health issues are examined in this book from political, historical, technological and feminist perspectives. The issues examined include: abortion; infertility; drug and alcohol use in pregnancy; childbirth; AIDS; menst

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Helen M. Murphy, MSN, MPH, RN (University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill School of Nursing)
Description: This book examines medical, social research, and public messages about women's health. It analyzes the various modes of delivering messages to show consistencies, inconsistencies, and gaps in research and in our understanding of women's healthcare.
Purpose: It is intended to provide an overview of the pattern of gaps and biases in public media, campaign messages, and medical and social research/information about women's healthcare.
Audience: The book is aimed at nonacademicians, media consumers of women's health messages, and academicians, students and health practitioners specializing in women's health, and in addition, those involved in the social sciences.
Features: The book has few illustrations, and those are black-and-white. Perhaps a little more attention here would have enhanced the book. On the other hand, the references are current, very pertinent, and come from a wide variety of sources.
Assessment: This is an excellent book. The subject matter is thoroughly and broadly researched by experts from a variety of U.S. universities and colleges. The content is presented in a unique, realistic, and relevant way, emphasizing the role politics and the media play in the process of constructing messages about women's healthcare. Moreover, a broad framework is used to outline the topic, including environmental, sociopolitical, and economic dimensions of women's healthcare messages. The book would be most useful for the well educated public, women's health advocacy groups, students and health practitioners specializing in women's health, in addition to social scientists. I highly recommend that libraries, bookstores, and individuals purchase it.

Meet the Author

I emphasize the processes and outcomes associated with communication about health. My recent research focuses on the design of health messages to promote behavioral adaptation in situations where individuals are unable, unwilling, and/or unlikely to avoid situations and practices that put their health at risk. I have applied a behavioral adaptation approach to farmers' sun protection practices and am currently investigating its utility for involving the lay public in understanding the implications of human genetics research and information for personal well-being. I utilize a community-based approach in the dissemination of behavioral adaptation messages.
