The Women’s Health Movement arose within the context of the late twentieth century amidst the development of new reproductive technologies and diverse cultural revolutions. This essay traces the history behind women’s health and grassroots movements in order to reveal a more comprehensive understanding of the ways in which history has shaped the struggles – and progresses – of today. “Tracing the Evolution of the Women’s Health Movement” investigates various theoretical feminist frameworks in order to reveal the epistemological gaps that have transpired, and continue to plague, women’s health.
