9781558611115: A Rising Public Voice: Women in Politics Worldwide

In essays, profiles, and interviews, activists and women at the highest levels of national governments describe election campaigns, party politics, and work in parliamentary chambers; whether and how their agendas and political styles differ from men's; and how, unlike men, they must manage family responsibilities and accept public scrutiny of their personal lives.

Product Description:

Leaders from 30 countries reveal the problems, sacrifices, rewards, and realities of women in public life.

From Booklist:

If, despite current tensions, the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing goes forward, this collection of essays by or about women taking on major governmental responsibilities around the globe will be a useful resource. In "Reality Politics," Brill blends surveys of women's struggle for political access in Australia, New Zealand, India, and Bulgaria with discussions of women's political "place" in a reunified Germany, China, Israel, and Palestine. "Paths to Power" includes essays on how notable individuals won political credibility in Japan, South Africa, Portugal, Britain, and the U.S., plus profiles of nine leading female politicians. "Women Count" spells out statistics on women's participation in governments around the world while "Women Hold Up Half the Sky" offers visions of a better future from activists in Central and South America and Africa. Only 5 of the 20-plus pieces Brill has selected are published elsewhere, so libraries whose readers care about women's political accomplishments will want to add A Rising Public Voice to their shelves. Mary Carroll
