The most up-to-date global perspective on how women are living today across continents and cultures.
In this completely revised and updated fifth edition of her groundbreaking atlas, Joni Seager provides comprehensive and accessible analysis of up-to-the-minute global data on the key issues facing women today: equality, motherhood, feminism, the culture of beauty, women at work, women in the global economy, changing households, domestic violence, lesbian rights, women in government, and more. The result is an invaluable resource on the status of women around the world today.
Joni Seager is an activist and scholar of feminist geography, gender and the environment, and global environmental policy. She is professor and former chair of the Global Studies Department at Bentley University in Boston, Massachusetts, and was dean of the Faculty of Environmental Studies at York University in Toronto, Canada. She has consulted on several global gender and environmental policies with UNESCO and the United Nations Environment Programme. Her publications include The State of Women in the World Atlas, The Real State of America Atlas, and Carson’s Silent Spring.
