Abstract

...I began by saying that an ethical perspective on women's health begins and ends with principles of justice. I conclude by noting that refocusing efforts on women's health can begin to rectify some of the past injustices. Only by striving for the broader goals of justice that grant women status and respect equal to that enjoyed by men, and to poor women and women of color equal access to the health care system, can we hope to make overall gains in improving women's health.
