From School Library Journal YA-- A survey of the economic, educational, social, and political status of women in the U. S., Canada, Africa, the Eastern European block, Western Europe, and Latin America in the 80s. It is organized in case studies of major countries and contains over 75 statistical tables, providing a compendium of valuable current data. The tone of the encyclopedic report is severe, its presentation of facts showing the denial of women's rights is hard but true, its advocacy for improvement is relentless. Rhoodie provides a concluding section on recommendations, a guide to information sources, and research proposals. An indispensable work that brings home the need for urgent action. --Carolyn Trachta, formerly at Clear Creek High School, TX Copyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc.
