"World events continue to reveal the importance of understanding how women live across continents and cultures. Using maps, text, and other graphics in this new revision of her eye-opening book, Joni Seager employs up-to-the-minute research and data to show what shifts have occurred since the first edition was published over twenty years ago--the strides made by women and the distance still to be traveled. She explores the current status of women in relation to such key issues as: equality, motherhood, feminism, the culture of beauty, women at work, women in the global economy, changing households, domestic violence, girls' welfare, lesbian rights, women in government. Filled with a wealth of information creatively displayed, The Penguin Atlas of Women in the World is an indispensable resource for understanding the world we live in"--Page 4 of cover.
