Women's Rights

Front Cover
Facts On File, 2007 - Political Science - 401 pages
At the dawn of the 21st century, women still have as many difficult and complex issues to deal with as ever before. From affirmative action and service in active combat, to educational rights and reproductive rights, to sexual harassment and religious leadership roles, women continue to face challenges on a daily basis.

Women's Rights examines this history and the current status of women's rights in the United States and abroad, namely Denmark, China, Afghanistan, and Kenya. This intriguing volume highlights the means by which women challenge their respective situations and cause change within their countries. With access to global communication means such as the Internet, many of these movements can now look to each other as a source for what to do or avoid to implement positive change.
