NEW RELEASE: The Unfinished Revolution: Voices from the Global Fight for Women's Rights [08.05.2012]
The Unfinished Revolution tells the story of the global struggle to secure basic rights for women and girls, including in the Middle East where the Arab Spring raised high hopes, but the political revolutions are so far insufficient to guarantee progress. In many countries, women are second-class citizens by law. In others, religion and traditions block freedoms such as the right to work, study or access health care.
More than 30 writers —Nobel Prize laureates, leading activists, top policy makers, and former victims—have contributed to this anthology. Drawing from their rich personal experiences, they tackle some of the toughest questions and offer bold new approaches to problems affecting hundreds of millions of women.
As Leymah Gbowee, 2011 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate says, “Women are not free anywhere in this world until all women in the world are free.”
