This chapter provides the book’s rationale, reviews themes that are central to the book, and presents an overview of its chapters. The collection aims to bring insights from healthcare providers, clinical ethicists, scholars, and community together as a way of broadening feminist bioethics and being responsive to ethical issues in women’s healthcare. A starting premise is that gender is central to the evaluation of healthcare and healthcare practices. Several feminist themes that are pertinent to the ethics analyses throughout the book are described. These include relational components of moral life, justice and oppression, women-centered care, implications of sex and gender distinctions, and examining issues through an ethics lens. The overview of chapters highlights the specific gaps in the literature each one fills, along with how they fit together as a collection.
