About this book


The book is concerned with social issues and problems that effect women throughout the world, the policies and practices that impinge on their human rights, and the programmes around the globe that are successfully changing their conditions. This interdisciplinary work provides a rich resource of information, linking discrimination and violence against women to family law, sex roles to sex industries, and sexual oppression to politics, education, employment, health and mental health.
