The No-Nonsense Guide to Women's Rights

Front Cover
Between the Lines, 2004 - Women - 139 pages
How much how much has life really changed for women over the last decade? Has the women's movement affected women all over the world? Has it changed women's relationships with men?Nikki van der Gaag answers these questions with hard, sometimes disturbing, evidence. Many women have made huge leaps forward--in legal rights, political representation, employment, education, and health. The rhetoric of "gender equality" slips easily off the tongues of politicians. But beneath the surface the statistics are shocking. And men have changed very little. Vivid testimonies from around the world explain why, especially in this post-feminist age, women's rights are still very much an issue--for men and women alike.
