Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Covering a wide range of topics, and dealing with real-life issues, these international contributors, who are both male and female and who cross a variety of boundaries - social, cultural and political - examine various dimensions of women's lived experiences so that they might address the challenges that arise from women's contemporary struggles in relation to globalization, human rights and their place in a political economy. Divided into four sections, each section includes an introductory essay, and then each chapter recaps some of the history of the given issue before going on to examine its current status.
