Presents an introduction to a gender perspective in environmental health. Explores how men and women interact with their respective biophysical environments, and how their gendered spheres of activity protect their health or place it at risk. Also aims to further our knowledge as to how biological differences between the sexes can produce different health outcomes among men and women when exposed to the same environmental hazard.
