Beyond Reproduction examines the women's health movement of the 1990s and how activists achieved unprecedented policy changes in the areas of medical research, HIV/AIDS, breast cancer, and violence against women. It analyzes the composition, approach, strategies, and context of the women's health movement, specifying the many factors that led to these significant federal level policy changes. Beyond Reproduction enhances our understanding of women's movements, women's health movements, and other social movements and how, when, and why activists are able to produce substantial political change.
