Summary
A collection that examines how national differences in health care have influenced women's lives and informed feminist politics in North America. Focusing on the dynamic decades after 1945, when both the US and Canada began using federal funds to expand access to health care, this volume covers a wide range of issues, including childbirth, abortion and sterilization, palliative care, pharmaceutical regulation, immigration, and Native health care
