Ideologies of Breast Cancer provides a unique consideration of the role of this increasingly common disease. By drawing together a wide range of recent contemporary thought and research, sharing a feminist perspective which asserts the presence of women with the disease, the many meanings of breast cancer are revealed. Individual chapters consider issues of risk, environmental justice, political activism in California, women’s construction of breast cancer knowledge, popular media representations of the disease, and published autobiographical narratives.
