Medical bodies: gender, justice and medicine

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Interrogation of the body has been vital to the feminist project. Australian feminist scholars have been integral to these contestations and engagements with the body, and indeed, many of these critical interventions have appeared in the pages of Australian Feminist Studies. This special issue on ‘Medical Bodies: Gender, Justice and Medicine’ continues the journal’s role in supporting feminist theoretical and political engagements with the body. It achieves this by directing attention to questions of gender, bodies and justice (as well as injustice) in the contemporary medico-legal terrain.
