Sally Clune's new book makes an important point: women have a more intimate relationship with death and dying than men do, and the implications of this have not been sufficiently recognized. Women have different attitudes toward dying and terminal illness, and more intense responses to loss. Above all, women are the chief caretakers of the sick and dying, on both public and private levels.
