Gender Issues and Health

  1. I am writing an assignment for my Occ Health Nursing degree and wonder if anyone has any information about gender issues and health, such as inequalities in health provision and health belief differences?

    I studied this at length during my masters. Unfortunately many of my references are back in the UK. When is your deadline? I am visiting UK at the end of April and if that's not too late I will hunt out the references for you.

    One useful reference is "Gyn/Ecology" by Mary Daly. If you're looking for explanations of how men make women ill this is a great one to throw into the debate as she's very off the wall.

    Another one I remember off the top of my head is "Men's Health and Illness" by Sabo and Gordon. People tend to focus on women's health when they tackle this, so it's good to throw in the other side. Good luck!


    Have just noticed your post is four years old! You'll have finished the PhD by now!!
