Caught up of necessity in our own habits, our languages, and our outlooks, we sometimes cannot see beyond our own cultural patterns. Fueled by the explosion of research on women since the 70s, this book reaches to the reader's sense of being a citizen of the planet, connected or tied to women regardless of cultural differences. In the international women's movement "personal is political" and women have learned from each other that their stories count for more than their feelings, their opinions, or their observances of the rules. No writer or researcher can claim complete objectivity or honesty if they separate themselves from what they say. Martha Ward brought her personal experiences with her as she updated her groundbreaking book. Written by an anthropologist with almost 30 years of experience, A World Full of Women takes an ethnographic, cross-cultural approach. All the examples are drawn from the lives of ordinary women from many cultures around the world. Topics include: work and gender, love and the work culture, biocultural markers, patterns of partnering, cultural systems for separating females and males, suffering and healing, and much more. Anthropologists, women studies experts, feminists and non-feminists alike.
