  • Ten years ago when I wrote the foreword to the first edition of this book, the concept of women’s health was changing at a rapid pace. The focus was just shifting from solely reproductive issues and biological factors, to an expanded perception that women’s health encompasses biological, familial, cultural, economic, emotional, psychological, and behavioral elements of each woman and her sociopolitical environment, beyond just the reproductive organs and across her entire lifespan.

  • Dr. Sharon Rounds, the editor for this series who invited us to write a book on rare lung diseases, developed the idea after attending the 2004 Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) Foundation annual research meeting. She was a keynote speaker at that event (during her tenure as the president of the American Thoracic Society) and was witness to the power of patient advocacy and the mission-based scientific effort that had brought this rare disease of women from obscurity to clinical trials with targeted molecular therapies in under a decade.

  • For the Seventh Edition of this text, the title has been changed to Kistner's Gynecology and Women's Health (from Kistner's Gynecology) to recognize the broad scope and expanded interest in the field of women's health care. Although over the past 35 years, previous editions of Kistner have appealed largely to students, trainees, and practitioners in gynecology, this new edition should be useful not only for gynecologists but for internists, family practitioners, and women's health specialists who are devoting more of their time and effort to women's medical issues.

  • From ancient times until the modern technological age, healthcare was mostly for, about and by women. The wonder of the reproductive cycle, the miracle of birth and the powerless mystery of death were the domains of women who watched over them. Before the dawn of patriarchy, women were the natural healers and guardians of the mysteries and stories of the people. Women looked to the earth from where life began and where the food for sustaining life was grown for help in healing the ill.

  • The impact that physical and psychological violence have on the health of an older person is exacerbated by the ageing process and diseases of old age. It is more difficult for the elderly to leave an abusive relationship or to make correct decisions because of the physical and cognitive impairments that usually come with old age. In some places, kinship obligations and the use of the extended family network to resolve difficulties may also lessen the ability of older people, particularly women, to escape from dangerous situations.

  • Anti-choice activists already succeeded in changing the legal standards for assessing restrictions on a woman’s right to choose; in Casey (1992), the court abandoned the most exacting standard of legal review applied to fundamental rights, “strict scrutiny,” and instead implemented the less protective standard of asking merely whether a restriction imposes an “undue burden” on a woman’s right to choose. 33 A second avenue of attack on Roe is to restrict or eliminate altogether its protections for women’s health.

  • The numerous limitations faced by women, particularly in rural areas, have compelled them to look for alternative options in other places. For example, in Latin America, a great part of the migrations from rural areas during the 1960s and 1970s was made up of women seeking better opportunities as maids in cities (Villarreal 1996). In recent decades, rural women have continued to migrate to urban areas and, besides domestic work, they are also employed in export assembly plants or maquilas, particularly in Central America (Vargas-Lundius 2007, 221-27).

  • Women’s health concerns have been considered, examined, and researched differently by the medical establishment than those of men. Their concerns and diseases have often been considered unusual and abnormal when compared to those of men. Yet, the differences between women and men, discovered and noted in medicine and research, may be more a creation of society and its expectations than that of nature.1 Women are more similar to men than they are different.

  • 432 NEUROLOGIC DISEASE IN WOMEN insomnia, and anxiety. Less than half of these cases are correctly identified as alcohol-related. Women are also more likely to be admitted to non–alcohol-specific treatment, such as general psychiatric units rather than conventional alcohol treatment services (81) and are more likely to drop out of treatment (85). Because female alcoholics often have low self-esteem and feelings of shame and embarrassment, they may balk at confrontational techniques and require more supportive and skill-building approaches.

Although the characteristics and corresponding needs of women prisoners can vary considerably between countries, several factors are common to most. These include many mental disorders, a high level of drug or alcohol dependence, many women experiencing sexual and physical abuse and violence before or in prison, the neglect of gender-specific health care needs and additional issues related to the women’s responsibility for children and families.
