The paper begins by exploring the historical and socio-economic context of Aboriginal women’s lives that have so profoundly impacted their health and well-being. It then examines the influence of gender on the health o women generally and on Aboriginal women specifically. This is followed by an overview of some of the health disparities between First Nations, Inuit and Metis women compared with non-Aboriginal women today, and of the barriers that must be overcome to address these disparities.
