Abstract

What is women’s empowerment, and how and why does it matter for women’s health? Despite the rise of a human rights–based approach to women’s health and increasing awareness of the synergies between women’s health and empowerment, a lack of consensus remains as to how to measure empowerment and successfully intervene in ways that improve health. Women’s Empowerment and Global Health presents thirteen multidisciplinary case studies that demonstrate how science and advocacy can be creatively merged to enhance the agency and status of women. The content is enriched by ancillary videos that give background about programs in India, the United States, Mexico, Nicaragua, Zimbabwe, and South Africa. Women’s Empowerment and Global Health provides the next generation of researchers and practitioners, as well as students in global and public health, sociology, anthropology, women’s studies, law, business, and medicine, with cutting-edge and inspirational examples of programs that point the way toward achieving women’s equality and fulfilling the right to health.
