Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 019515925X, Paperback)

Despite increased international rhetoric in support of women's equality, women currently comprise a disproportionate share of the world's illiterate, poor, displaced, underpaid, underemployed, and underrepresented populations. And though women have gained visibility and influence in a wide array of political and economic arenas, their position and status in society are still far from equal to those of men. On the other hand, since the post-World War II era, there has been a global explosion of women's activism on behalf of equality, liberation, and better living conditions--women are standing up not only for themselves, but also for other disempowered groups.
Participation and Protest provides an overview of the ways in which women participate in institutionalized politics, social movements, and revolutionary movements. It discusses key policy issues that affect women, such as equality in the workforce, maternity and family leave policies, and reproductive rights. Exploring the critical concerns that confront women in the world community--including economic development, war, and international law--the book analyzes the role of women in nationalist and fundamentalist movements, and also considers women's rights in the broader context of international human rights. Offering global coverage of this important subject, Participation and Protest examines the impact of women in politics--and politics' impact on women--from a cross-national, comparative perspective.
