Overview

Women's Roles and Statuses the World Over stands alone in the unique contribution it makes to the field of women's rights. With this publication, based solely on statistics and empirical data, authors Stephanie Hepburn and Rita J. Simon have crafted an important contribution to the study of women in society. Focusing on twenty-six countries from around the globe, they compare the status of women in the areas of education, employment, marriage and divorce, law, abortion and contraceptives, public office, military service, and health care. The countries selected reflect a representative pool of the world's cultures, religions, traditions, and politics. Hepburn and Simon provide a clear discourse of how much more progress must occur to set men and women on equal footing. Comprehensive and distinctive, Women's Roles and Statuses the World Over is an indispensable guide to the social issues, problems, and practices that affect women today.
