AUTHOR

SUMMARY

In this book, a team of international contributors examine bodies, leakage and boundaries, illuminating the contradictions and dilemmas in women's healthcare.Using the concept of pollution, this book highlights how women and health issues are categorised, and health workers and women are confined to roles and places defined as socially appropriate. The book explores in-depth current and historical practices, such as: childbirth and midwifery practice policies and social practices around breastfeeding gynaecological nursing, female incontinence and sexually transmitted infections miscarriages and termination of pregnancy. Addressing things out of place, from the idea of 'dirty work' to feeling 'dirty', from diagnoses that disrupt our self-image to beliefs and practices which undermine health service provision, this book uses the contradictions in our thinking around pollution and power to stimulate thinking around women's health.Kirkham, Mavis is the author of 'Exploring the dirty Side of Women's Health ' with ISBN 9780415383257 and ISBN 0415383250.
