Summary
In a series of accessible case studies, contributors here show that women worldwide react pragmatically to medical technology, with responses ranging from acceptance to resistance to indifference. The study also addresses such themes as the emergence of the breast cancer movement and reactions to environmental hazards. This book will be a key text in medical anthropology and women's studies
