Description - Women, Body, Illness by Pamela Moss
This work explores concepts of body and space to understand the daily struggles of women with chronic illness. It shows how such women - coping with notions of illness, health and being female - restructure physical and social environments through strategies to accommodate disabling illnesses such as chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis or rheumatoid arthritis. Featuring original research and personal stories, it tells the tales of women forging networks of support, redefining themselves and challenging what it is to be ill.
