Title: Women at Risk: A Historical Perspective
Description: The historical roots of women’s health care research and agenda were informed by values and assumptions that stereotyped women and their places and position in society. I will discuss some of the theoretical assumptions and will challenge the group to think about the role that nursing scholarship may have played in substituting views of women as subjects and objects, to view women as agents of their own bodies and care.
