Women’s Health has been a topic in EHPS conferences for many years, and sessions focused specifically on women’s health have been organized in many EHPS conferences starting at Lisbon in 2002. Since 2015, we have been convening an annual symposium, with the aim of highlighting unique questions relevant to women and their health in the local social contexts in which they live.
The striking theme that emerges most years of the symposium is women’s health as anchored in their relationships across the lifespan – as would-be mothers, as mothers and grandmothers, as partners and friends, as caregivers to their parents, children, and spouses. The roles themselves are shaped by cultural expectations, thus the roles and the relationships can show similarities, as well as differences across cultures and countries.
