Critical Perspectives in Public Health Feminisms
A unique and innovative collection, Critical Perspectives in Public Health Feminisms gives space to chronically underrepresented voices in public health through engaging with Public Health Feminisms (PHF). PHF describes a technique of analysis that attends gender and intersections of race, class, sexuality, age, and ability in public health.
Including the perspectives of Black, Indigenous, women of colour, refugee, immigrant, (dis)abled, neurodivergent, two-spirit, non-binary, trans and/or gender diverse scholars, this text aims to fill a gap in public health scholarship and practice. Through a social justice approach, it critically addresses how public health services, policies, and programming are unable to protect and promote the health of all Canadians due to their lack of representation and inclusivity from inception to execution.
This accessible and thought-provoking volume is essential for upper-year undergraduate and graduate students across all areas in public health and gender and health studies. It provides analytical, theoretical, and methodological tools to inform work in public health services, policies, and programming through a PHF lens.
