Editors: Thorne, Magdalena E.
Book Description:
The path of women to achieve equal rights has been and remains a deeply uphill climb. The recent Martha Stewart case is a prime example of unfair treatment of women. Here is a women who could lose her business and go to prison for lying. The same act Clinton, Bush and Blair practice on a global scale. If all the Wall Street titans and soliticians went to jail for lying, we would have to build a prison on every street. Women are moving upward in rockets against great resistance. This new book presents some of the achievements, risk and challenges women are trying to deal with at the beginning of the 21st century.
