Overview

This indispensable reference—published to coincide with the UN-sponsored world conference marking the end of the Decade for Women—combines essays by leading women writers with comprehensive, up-to-date statistics. The UN Decade for Women (1975-85) was an unprecedented international effort to collect information about the position of women a decade after the start of the women's movement. The results of this effort, augmented by research carried out by Oxford University's Centre for Cross-Cultural Research on Women, are reported here in summary form and in tables, graphs, and charts.
In addition, the book includes essays by ten leading writers—five women from the Third World reporting on conditions in wealthier countries, and five women from industrialized nations writing about developing countries, resulting in a fascinating series of cross-cultural viewpoints. Authoritative both in its research and its range of contributors, Women: A World Report stands as the definitive work on the state of the world's women.
