About the book:

Find out information on a multitude of important issues, and discover facts pertinent to anyone concerned about women's issues and women's status in the growing global community. Based largely on United Nations documents and unpublished reports commissioned by the U.N., Where Women Stand provides the latest facts on women in the world around us.

Two complimentary sections illuminate pressing issues and essential statistics about women's status around the world. The first section provides a global progress report on women's political representation, education, and employment. It also deals with marriage and divorce, family planning, and domestic violence. The second section uses these topics as criteria to profile 140 countries, 21 of them in depth. With ample graphs, charts, and tables, no other book offers so much information in such an easy-to-access format.
