Book description

The Routledge International Handbook of Women?s Sexual and Reproductive Health is the authoritative reference work on important, leading-edge developments in the domains of women?s sexual and reproductive health.

The handbook adopts a life-cycle approach to examine key milestones and events in women?s sexual and reproductive health. Contributors drawn from a range of disciplines, including psychology, medicine, nursing and midwifery, sociology, public health, women?s studies, and indigenous studies, explore issues through three main lenses:

  • the biopsychosocial model
  • feminist perspectives
  • international, multidisciplinary perspectives that acknowledge the intersection of identities in women?s lives.

The handbook presents an authoritative review of the field, with a focus on state-of-the-art work, encouraging future research and policy development in women?s sexual and reproductive health. Finally, the handbook will inform health care providers about the latest research and clinical developments, including women?s experiences of both normal and abnormal sexual and reproductive functions.

Drawing upon international expertise from leading academics and clinicians in the field, this is essential reading for scholars and students interested in women?s reproductive health.
