This travel guide reveals the everyday concerns, issues and pleasures that are unique to women but are rarely even touched upon in guides written by men. The subjects of harassment and safety are dealt with - women are told if they are likely to treated as an honoured guest, an honorary man, or an easy lay. Country-by-country introductions and travel notes detail special problems, laws and customs of relevance to women. Listings are provided for women's organizations, venues and specialist provisions. Introductory background and recent historical and political updates give pointers about the issues important to women in each country. 15 new countries are covered in this edition, including Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Denmark, Guatamala, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Laos, Malaysia, Russia, Thailand, Tibet, Uganda and Ukraine.
