A thought provoking examination of the interrelationship between and among feminist bioethics, human rights, and global development, Linking Visions addresses global concerns about oppression in the context of health care, medical research, and population health. Reflecting the ever-expanding diversity and comprehensiveness of feminist bioethics, contributors examine such topics as reproductive rights of women in India, HIV/AIDs policies, patenting genetic material, the language of human rights, and consequences of the 'Global Gag Rule'. Linking Visions demonstrates the far-reaching effects of feminism on global bioethics, highlighting and celebrating the reality that feminist work is no longer relegated solely to the realm of reproductive, sexual, or maternal ethics.

Editorial Reviews

Laura Purdy
Another FAB feast! This collection of thought-provoking essays advances feminist bioethics—and all bioethics. Its gems will be building blocks for further research and a wonderful resource for teaching.
October 2006 Philosophy in Review
The collection is thought provoking....and well worth reading....It is a valuable contribution in the battle for a socially just world.
Wendy Rogers
In this collection, the editors have brought together an impressive range of international voices addressing the connections among feminism, human rights, and global development. The result is a fascinating and rigorous examination of the common ground between these three fundamental areas of bioethics. This collection demonstrates the significant contributions that feminist analysis can make to questions of human rights and development, and broadens the debate in important ways. Feminist ethics has much to offer, and much to gain from, dialogues of this nature.
