The subject of women's sexual and reproductive health has been surrounded in a mantle of silence. This silence is pervasive in women's lives and is manifested by the difficulty in discussing or disseminating information regarding women's sexuality in our families, our relationships, and in society as a whole. This volume is designed to motivate and engage scientists, policy makers, and practitioners to greater scientific discourse, reduce the stigma and validate the importance of women's sexual and reproductive health.
The editors and contributors bring the topic of women's sexual and reproductive health to the forefront in a useful and intellectually stimulating manner, and include a wealth of knowledge and current information on:

-epidemiology;

-social and behavioral correlates;

-effective intervention and prevention strategies; and

-health policies relating to women's sexual and reproductive health. The use of a multidisciplinary perspective, bringing together historians, anthropologists, psychologists, sociologists, epidemiologists, public health researchers, genetic counselors, attorneys, demographers, journalists, social workers, nurses and physicians, allows for comprehensive coverage that will benefit women's health advocates, students, and practitioners.
