This provocative work explores concepts of body and space to understand the daily struggles of women with chronic illness. Moss and Dyck show how such women - coping with notions of illness, health, and being female - restructure physical and social environments through strategies to accommodate disabling illnesses such as chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, or rheumatoid arthritis. Featuring original research and personal stories, Women, Body, Illness tells the tales of women forging networks of support, redefining themselves, and challenging what it is to be ill.
