Women's rights have progressed significantly in the last two decades, but major challenges remain in order to end global gender discrimination. The unfinished revolution: Voices from the global fight for women's rights outlines the recent history of the battle to secure basic rights for women and girls, including in the Middle East where the hopes raised by the Arab Spring are yet to be fulfilled. This anthology opens with a foreword by Christiane Amanpour and features essays by more than 30 writers, activists, policymakers and human rights experts, including Nobel laureates Shirin Ebadi and Jody Williams. Most important are contributions from women who have fought against human rights abuses and have become agents of change. Contributors propose new workable solutions to ongoing rights violations including human trafficking and harmful traditional practices such as child marriage and female genital mutilation. As a whole, the book shows that the struggle for women's equality is far from over. It is essential reading for everyone involved in the fight to realise the full potential for half the world's population.

About the Author:

As Director of Global Initiatives for Human Rights Watch, Minky Worden develops and implements international outreach and advocacy campaigns. She previously served as Human Rights Watch's Media Director, as an adviser to Democratic Party chairman Martin Lee in Hong Kong, and as a speechwriter at the Justice Department in Washington, DC.

Review:

"The unfinished revolution made me angry and hopeful in equal measure - angry because it charts the abuse of women's rights the world over, hopeful because it tells the stories of brave women and men who are bringing change. Essential reading for those who work in the field of human rights". --- Lindsey Hilsum, International Editor, Channel 4 News. "This important book brings together the stories of women across the world who still struggle for their rights, and their rightful place in their own societies. Some of their stories are heart-breaking, others inspiring and uplifting. They tell us about the "power of an idea" to bring about real change in the lives of women and girls, however painfully slow in some places, and visibly strong in others". --- Lyse Doucet, BBC special correspondent. "Diverse voices of hopeless, hopeful, and boldly determined women from around the world comprise a compelling, multicultural resource supplemented by copious endnotes, a reading list, and an index." -- Booklist. " While sociologically and academically relevant, this is a cohesive and eminently readable document that is simultaneously an inspiration and a call-to-action. " --- Publishers Weekly. "The unfinished revolution is a great read, essential for any reader who is passionate about human rights, freedom, justice, and equality for all." --- 5 star review on Amazon.com. "The book's thoughtful organization and structure make it easily accessible to anyone interested in human rights, women's issues or global inequalities." LSE Review of Books
