Australian and British feminists during the last quarter of the 20th century were motivated by a common analysis of gender bias in the delivery of health services, but operated in different political environments and so devised different strategies. The Australian women's movement worked within, as well as against, the state, but the emphasis has shifted from alternative service options to making mainstream services more responsive. The British women's movement was a less influential political constituency and less active within state institutions. Both health systems now focus on making mainstream services more responsive to the health needs of both women and men.

Keywords:   gender, women's health, men's health, responsiveness mainstream services
