LEYVA MORAL, Juan Manuel. Female body domination: fenminist analysis of the climateric and professional care. Ene. [online]. 2014, vol.8, n.1. ISSN 1988-348X.

This is a theoretical text that aims to expand the focus of nursing care, to abolish the typical reductionism of the biomedical model, to encourage to a critical thinking and a holistic conception of the people we care, ultimately, to construct high quality nursing care.
