In rural areas themselves, women play a critical role in the health of their families and communities, yet womens health is often marginalized or ignored. There have been limited studies to date about rural women and health in Canada. Filling an important gap in scholarship, this collection identifies priority issues that must be addressed to ensure these womens well-being and offers innovative theoretical and methodological ideas for improvement.Rural Womens Health integrates perspectives from rural practitioners, residents, and scholars in a variety of fields, including nursing, sociology, anthropology, and geography, to tackle issues relevant to diverse settings across the country.

As such, it presents a national perspective on the nature of womens health while respecting internal and regional diversity, as well as viewpoints from international scholarship.
