Has the battle for women's rights been won? Not when women still make up 70 per cent of the world's poor. This guide examines the advances that have been made more women working, more girls being educated, but also looks beneath the surface to find out what the reality is for women all around the world.
There are still hundreds of thousands of unnecessary deaths in childbirth; physical and sexual assault is commonplace and some rights are being eroded by religious fundamentalism.
Nikki van der Gaag offers a vivid dissection of the state of women's rights and shows how, in this post-feminist age, they are still very much an issue.
The No-Nonsense Guide to Women's Rights fulfils its brief very well, concise and comprehensive. - Oxfam UK.
