Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"…a simple-to-use, well-organized, comprehensive resource for high schoolers and above. The writing style is clear, and the personal accounts from women across generations add interest. The volumes are chock-full of engaging data gathered from documented studies, and the chapters challenge readers to think critically and urge self-reflection. A necessary acquisition for anyone interested in equal rights for women and for public, academic, and high school libraries with women's studies collections."

faculty/professionals."

Choice

"Paludi has drawn together an encyclopedic body of research, analysis, and finely drawn conclusions to paint a remarkably detailed picture of the place and circumstances of women in the world today. Although the title includes the word 'feminism', which can imply women having a degree of freedom and power, this work shows not just the opportunities but also the limitations and challenges women face globally, and it does so with remarkable clarity and, at times, aching honesty….Paludi has created a trio of well-documented texts in clear and direct language, suitable for any broad treatment of feminism, and by extension for women's studies at the college and university level. This resource would also be suitable for advanced high school classes…This is an accessible but outstanding reference work, in a field where issues are so important and harm so egregious that such a calm but thorough treatment is both rate and welcome."
