Vamps, Virgins and Victims: How Can Women Fight AIDS? (Women on women) - Softcover
This women-centred approach to analyzing the different impacts of the pandemic on women and men, and how HIV/AIDS function as a paradigm for other women's issues. Questions addressed include: what is the relationship between AIDS and women's health, sexuality and socio-economic status?; is there a feminist agenda on AIDS?; how have women been portrayed in discourse about the epidemic?; are women living with the virus treated differently from men?; and what activities put women at risk?. This work (which is not intended as a handbook for women living with or affected by HIV/AIDS) draws on evidence from the UK, the EC and the US.
