Overview

At the heart of this book are case studies written by country teams of scholars, educators, and policy analysts from around the world. The cases come from east and west, north and south, poor countries and rich countries. Each team worked diligently to identify catalysts that raised or lowered female well-being in their countries by documenting key trends from 1900 to 2000 in infant mortality, maternal mortality, literacy, life expectancy, education, work, income, family structure, and political power. The teams analyzed the trends in light of the century's major events, legislative initiatives, social policies, and leadership.
