Description - Women and AIDS by Professor Corinne Squire

Academic and media discourse on AIDS and HIV has so far tended to ignore women, or, at best, has portrayed them as either transmitters of HIV to male partners and children, or as victims of morally degenerate men. This book challenges such views and looks at the complex realities of women's relationships to HIV and AIDS. This text highlights key issues, such as the HIV antibody testing of women and its implications for reproductive rights; women's perceptions of HIV "risk", with particular reference to sexuality and drug use; women's experience of caring voluntarily and professionally for people living with HIV and AIDS, and representations of women and AIDS in scientific, policy and media debates. Pointing to the development of a feminist psychology of the subject, this collection should be of use for feminists and psychologists, as well as those researching or studying the issues raised by HIV and AIDS.
