abstract

  • The Intersecting Vulnerabilities research program began with the separate investigations by three research teams of the cancer care experiences of Aboriginal women (led by author TM), older women (led by author CS), and lower-income women (led by JG). We focused on the lived experience of breast or gynecological cancer among women who occupy these three social locations as critical cases – critical sites for knowledge development about women’s gendered experiences of health, illness, and care. A second phase of the project explored women’s similar experiences across the communities.
