    I was assigned parts of this books for a college class, but I found the material so engaging I read all of it She talks about health from a human rights perspective but what makes it unique is how she tracks legal history including victories and combines feminist theory as well The most interesting chapter is the one about hiv aids.

    read part of for class it doesn t have a radical analysis but does provide an important feminism analysis of global human rights.
