Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0897894766, Paperback)

Drawing from her travels in 26 countries, Andrews presents a compelling picture of the universality of women's struggle for empowerment. Andrews has collected stories about the most serious issues in women's consciousness-raising. Among the stories are discussions of the value of women's work, violence against women's bodies, women in the Presbyterian ministry, sexual harassment, and women's peace movements. These stories from Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the United States tell us of women of varied backgrounds—rural villagers and urban squatters, street vendors and factory workers, professional and office workers, married and single mothers, school girls and college students. Andrews brings these stories together and shows us how women in the United States are a part of the world-wide struggle for women's economic, political, social, and cultural empowerment.
