This book demonstrates that nurses have made an important contribution to the advancement and expansion of women's health knowledge. Selecting the health issues of most importance to women, the editors have assembled leading nurse researchers to review, summarize, and critique nursing research within each area. A general overview of the field is also provided. Contributors include Angela McBride, Linda Andrist, Janice Humphreys, and Jacquelyn Campbell. Also contributing are Kathleen MacPherson and Nancy King Reame, nurse members of the original Boston Women's Health Collective, which authors OUR BODIES, OURSELVES.
