From the Inside Flap

Have you noticed that work and family balance is viewed as a mother's issue and not a parent's issue? Do you know in your heart that violence is never the answer and want to stop it? Do you wish you saw more women leaders and politicians in decision-making positions?

Women’s voices are needed now more than ever, at the kitchen table and at the global roundtable. Covering subjects as diverse as pay equity, reproductive health, child care, racism, and leadership, 50 Ways to Improve Women’s Lives addresses topics that affect women (and all of us!) on a personal and political level—and provides readers with ways to move beyond tired arguments and turn inspiration in to action.

Format: Paperback
This book gives a great overview of issues that most effect women by sharing stories and facts to illustrate important areas where change needs to occur, from childcare and family issues to equal pay, and women in sports and science.

I found it quick and easy to read--and I have very little time as a working mom!--with practical and doable actions if I so chose. For example, I was appalled to hear about the state of (very little or misleading!) sex education for high school students. Since I have kids about to enter their teens, this issue spoke to me. And it gave several ways for me to get active: by not supporting funding for harmful abstinence programs; asking my elected officials to fund honest and comprehensive sex ed; and then how to make sure my kids develop their own decision-making and critical thinking skills related to sex (and how to talk to them about it!) And this is just one of the 50 Ways... in the book.

I highly recommend this for people who want to get involved but are not sure how--and who don't have time to read huge volumes of books on politics and public policy.

50 Ways to Improve Women's Lives was like a junior encyclopedia for gender issues that plague women. Topics addressed ranged from health, family, financial to domestic and sexual violence issues to gun control, and how each of these issues specifically effects women in invisible ways, as well as offering proactive solutions- without being overly aggressive- in an easy to digest format. This book would make a great feminism 101 primer.

Though I didn't read the whole thing, this is a good book. It doesn't merely complain about the problems that we women (sadly) still face. It actually provides us with solutions on how to remedy problems ranging from threats to reproductive freedom to pay inequities to racism against women of color, among other things. The book also provides a list of websites, books, and organizations that readers can contact for additional help. At a time when we as women are still facing injustices because of our sex, this book gives us what we need to fight the good fight and achieve justice, dignity, respect, and freedom for us and our sisters.

Very interesting. I got this for my women's studies class. Although it is a bit outdated, it really opened my eyes.
