Women's health issues have in recent years become the focus for an unprecedented degree of sophisticated technologic incursion. While much of rapid technologic advances, confined as it largely is to the richest societies of the globe, has perhaps enabled women to hold their place in the workforce, it has also taken the natural biological processes from the quiet path of individual lives and put them into the hands of expert management. Women's health is now similar to other consumer goods, available for purchase alongside the many commodities of the modern urban lifestyle.
