The No-nonsense Guide to Women's Rights

Front Cover
New Internationalist, 2008 - Social Science - 144 pages

Has the battle for women's rights been won? Not when women still make up 70 percent of the world's poor. This guide examines the advances that have been made and looks beneath the surface to find out what the reality is for women all around the world. It shows how, in this “post-feminist” age, women's rights are still very much an issue.

Nikki van der Gaag is a freelance writer, editor, and evaluator on development issues. Prior to this, she was editorial director at the Panos Institute and co-editor of the New Internationalist magazine.
