A powerful call to confront the reasons why global politics is jeopardising women's health across the world, by a prize-winning academic.

We know the causes of death and disease among women all over the world. We have the funding and commitment from governments and philanthropists to tackle it. So why are women still dying when they don't have to?

In In this essential, accessible book, Professor Sophie Harman argues that women's health is being caught in the crossfires of global politics - and gives us a roadmap for how we might stop it.

Harman uses case studies like the repeal of abortion rights, Serena Williams' near-death experience, and the bombing of maternity hospitals in Ukraine, as well as less well-known issues like health-washing by countries including Rwanda and exploitation of women by the very health organisations who are supposed to help them, to illustrate how women's health is being used and abused by politics and politicians across the globe. Through these stories, Sick of It explores urgent, topical questions around populist politics, big data and how women's work is valued, and offers smart solutions on how to fix this crisis through activism and political work.
