The Invisible Epidemic: The Story of Women and AIDS

Gena Corea, Author HarperCollins Publishers $23 (356p) ISBN 978-0-06-016648-9
The World Health Organization, reports journalist Corea ( The Mother Machine ), estimates that by the year 2000, HIV-positive women will outnumber similarly infected men. In this eye-opening account of women's struggle to be counted as victims, not only as transmitters, of this deadly disease, Corea, associate director of the Institute on Women and Technology, chronicles in profiles and with statis tics how the disease has affected women from a variety of backgrounds. She details the heroic early efforts of attorneys, television producers, prisoners and medical researchers to make the medical establishment acknowledge a disease that was killing women as well as men. With anger and acumen, Corea traces an American tragedy that is both a medical and a social issue. (Nov.)
