Recommends it for: anyone in the health field studying women, AIDS, or poverty.
So far I have just read some chunks of this book, but not the whole book. I have been impressed at how it aims to look for the gaps in our knowledge and research up until now about women and poverty in the context of AIDS. It's one of the first books or articles I've read that brings up (although briefly) the huge lack in consideration of lesbian and HIV/AIDS. It's written in an inspiring way.
