5.0 out of 5 stars Great source material!
I used this atlas in an Intro to Women's Studies and a Feminist Theory course. It is a great source of material for paper-writing, with very up-to date statistics, and fascinating maps. Of course, it does not always have as much indepth information as I'd like, but the maps would have to be significantly larger to incorporate 'everything'.

Decent read, but the information is outdated. Hopefully they revise the book sometime in the near future. Women in the World.

This review is from: The Penguin Atlas of Women in the World: Fourth Edition (Paperback)
I absolutely love this book. For anybody who is interested in gender issues, geography, politics, or sociology, it is a must read. It's not actually much of a "read" at all. It is a very visual book, with lots of colorful maps and graphs with very interesting statistics that you might not have otherwise thought about.

This book was alright I suppose if you want hardcore facts. Not at all boring, very colorful and with lots of graphical displays to make the info easier to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Must Read for Women!, September 5, 2011
The information supplied along with the maps are remarkable. The reader will instantly be able to see how women rate globally on issues that confront all females. The topics reach the gamut - health, domestic violence, work, contraception, families, birthrights, body politics, higher education, poverty, and women in government, feminist organizing, and many more. Even though the data is a tad dated the alarming disproportionate statistics between men and women; rich and poor; and educated and non-educated should wake you up and have you shouting for revolution.
