The importance of psychology and health, multiculturalism,
and a focus on strengths and positive psychology are
the dynamic issues of psychology in this new millennium.
These central issues in psychological research and practice
today form the backbone of the Handbook of Girls’ and
Women’s Psychological Health. To encounter all three integrated
into a handbook on women and girls is like fantasizing
a feast and having it appear on your table.
Ever wonder why women can brush their teeth while walking and talking on various subjects while men generally find this very difficult to do? Why 99 percent of all patents are registered by men? Why stressed women talk? Why so many husbands hate shopping? According to Barbara and Allan Pease, science now confirms that "the way our brains are wired and the hormones pulsing through our bodies are the two factors that largely dictate, long before we are born, how we will think and behave. Our instincts are simply our genes determining how our bodies will behave in given sets...

For their controversial new book on the differences between the way men and women think and communicate, Barbara and Allan Pease spent three years traveling around the world, collecting the dramatic findings of new research on the brain, investigating evolutionary biology, analyzing psychologists, studying social changes, and annoying the locals.
In the past few decades, the European workforce has seen a substantial rise in the
number of employed women. There is an increasing trend in women entering most
occupations while still carrying the responsibilities of domestic labor. Professional
and domestic demands can be overwhelming and diff cult to balance, thus placing
women in a very sensitive yet powerful position.
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
The only system designed for everything that today's modern women handle
Most time-management systems don't succeed for working women. Why? Quite simply, they don't understand our specific needs and the wide variety of tasks we find ourselves facing each day.
The purposes of this handbook are to provide a forum for presentation of the
current state of knowledge about women in business and management and
to specify the directions for future research that will be most constructive
for advancing the representation, treatment, quality of life and success of
women who work in these fi elds. In this sense, we hope that the Handbook
on Women in Business and Management will serve as a reference for recent
advances in research and theory, informing both scholars and those with a
general interest in the subject....
The number of women entering small business ownership has increased significantly
across the world. These women make a crucial contribution to the economic growth and
development of local, national and global economies. Yet, despite their increasing
numbers, they have received little attention from the academic community and research
into the experiences of women small business owners is confined to a handful of countries.
The work on women entrepreneurs is far more extensive and generally eclipses the
area of small business ownership.
Diabetes is a unique condition for women. When compared with men,
women have a 50 percent greater risk of diabetic coma, a condition brought on
by poorly controlled diabetes and lack of insulin. Women with diabetes have
heart disease rates similar to men, but more women with diabetes die from a
first heart attack than do men with diabetes. Diabetes also poses special
challenges during pregnancy.
A comprehensive review essential for those preparing
to take the midwifery (AMBC) or women’s health nurse
practitioner certification (NCC) examinations. The
Midwifery & Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner Certification
Review Guide was developed for both of these
nursing specialties because of the many commonalities
they share that enhance the delivery of care to women
during their life span.
This chapter provides a brief overview of the history of
women’s health and the array of factors that have played
a central role in shaping it. First, it presents a background
describing gender-based disparities in health care. It then
discusses the cultural context in which women have
been perceived by society, their representation in the
health care workforce, and the development of the medical
specialty of obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN), as
well as social, economic, and political forces that have
shaped the medical care provided to women....
Acknowledging the tremendous changes in the health care system, this book offers a current and fresh perspective on nursing in the 21st century. A departure from the "medical model", its emphasis on client education, shifting delivery of care, and a collaborative approach fosters a practical view of the challenges the student will encounter in the workplace. Core content areas are covered in detail, including pathophysiology, normal and high-risk pregnancy, and women's health across the life-span.

Women's risk for many diseases increases at menopause, which occurs at a median age of 51.4 years. In the industrialized world, women spend one-third of their lives in the postmenopausal period.
Estrogen levels fall abruptly at menopause, inducing a variety of physiologic and metabolic responses. Rates of cardiovascular disease increase and bone density begins to decrease rapidly after menopause.
In the United States, women live on average about 5 years longer than men, with a life expectancy at birth in 2004 of 80.4 years, compared to 75.2 years in men.
This edited collection had its beginnings in conversations with Jan Monk
and Janet Momsen who encouraged us to contribute to their series on the
geographical aspects of women’s lives. Their support and helpful comments
were invaluable during the long process of producing the volume.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 13
percent of women aged eighteen years and older are in poor, or merely
fair, health. More than 12 percent of women face a limitation in their
usual activities due to chronic health conditions. In addition, 62 percent
of women aged twenty years and older are overweight, a key predictor
of future health problems. Moreover, the medical concerns
women face often differ from those of most concern to men.
Women were among the first documented cases of AIDS (Corea, 1992; Shilts,
1987), and have continued to become infected, develop AIDS, and die, throughout
the course of this pandemic. Women have consistently constituted more than half
of those infected with HIV globally, while in the United States their representation
among those struck by AIDS has been increasing dramatically in recent years;
more new infections occur among women than men at the present time.
In Afghanistan, the role of women and their position in the society are inextricably
interlinked with the national destiny. Women are symbols of family honor but also carry
the burden of embodying the national honor and aspirations of the country. Gender has
thus been one of the most politicized issues in Afghanistan over the past 100 years, where
many reform attempts rightly or wrongly have been condemned by opponents as un-
Islamic and a challenge to the sanctity of the faith and family.
