Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Inspired by the awarding of the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize to three women for their nonviolent battles for the safety of women and human rights, Tawakkul Karman, of Yemen; Liberia’s Leymah Gbowee; and Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Africa’s first democratically elected female president, Worden, of Human Rights Watch, gathered together essays assessing the progress of worldwide rights for women and girls since the UN’s human rights conferences in the 1990s. The ongoing global struggle consists of three distinct spheres: economic issues (human trafficking, property rights); violence against women and their health rights (including genital mutilation); and harmful traditions (religious clothing restraints, so-called honor crimes). Contributors begin with Eleanor Roosevelt’s 1958 warning that Cold War politics threatened a doctrine of universal human rights transcending national sovereignty and move forward to today’s unequal property rights for African women and violence against immigrant women in America. Diverse voices of hopeless, hopeful, and boldly determined women from around the world constitute a compelling, multicultural resource supplemented by copious endnotes, a reading list, and an index. --Whitney Scott

Review

"This compilation of commissioned essays, anecdotes, and photos presents a powerful overview of contemporary women's issues--from the unsettlingly enormous backlogs of untested rape kits in Los Angeles, to genital mutilation and child marriage in Kurdistan and Afghanistan--and the ongoing fight for women's rights around the world. While sociologically and academically relevant, this is a cohesive and eminently readable document that is simultaneously an inspiration and a call-to-action.”
