The No-Nonsense Guide to Women's Rights, Second Edition
Written by Nikki van der Gaag.
Published in Canada in association with New Internationalist Publications Ltd. by Between the Lines, 2008.
|Has the battle for women's rights been won? Not when women still
make up 70 per cent of the world's poor.
The No-Nonsense Guide to Women's Rights examines the advances that have been made and looks beneath the surface to find out what the reality is for women all around the world. There are still unnecessary deaths in childbirth; physical and sexual assault is commonplace and some rights are being eroded by religious fundamentalism.
Nikki van der Gaag offers a vivid dissection of the state of women's rights and shows how, in this "post-feminist" age, they are still very much an issue.
"Nikki van der Gaag's book is refreshing and enjoyable. In it she has made a special effort to correct many of the misconceptions and biases related to the feminist movement, to link the liberation of women who constitute half of society to the liberation of men, and to the dispossessed majority living on the earth." Nawal El Saadawi, author of Women at Point ZeroNikki van der Gaag is a freelance writer, editor and evaluator on development issues. Prior to this she was editorial director at the Panos Institute and co-editor of the New Internationalist magazine.
