My name is Kristen Abatsis McHenry  and I am a faculty member at Spelman College in the Comparative Women’s Studies department. I earned my doctorate in Political Science from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and I hold a master’s degree in women’s and gender studies from Georgia State University. My research interests include women’s health, environment, and breast cancer advocacy.  My book The Green Solution to Breast Cancer: A Promise of Prevention examines the politics of breast cancer advocacy and its focus on environment and preventing breast cancer.  Recently, I have begun work on my next book which deals with fracking, gender, and health.

  1. Hi there Professor McHenry!

    It’s been a while, but I started reading your book. It’s a refreshing read and I’m looking forward to your next publication! I was wondering if you have a date set for it to come out?

    I hope all is well with you and schools been going great!
