How much has life really changed for women during the last decade? Has the womens movement affected women all over the world? Has it changed womens relationships with men? Nikki van der Gaag answers these questions with hard, sometimes disturbing, evidence. Many women have made huge leaps forwardin legal rights, political representation, employment, education, healthbut beneath the surface the statistics are shocking. Vivid testimonies from women and men around the world explain why, especially in this post-feminist age, womens rights are still very much an issue for men and women alike. “She has made a special effort to correct many of the misconceptions and biases related to the feminist movement, to link the liberation of women who constitute half of society to the liberation of men and to the dispossessed majority living on earth.” from the introduction by Nawal El Saadawi

Review:

"...she has made a special effort to correct many of the misconceptions and biases related to the feminist movement, to link the liberation of women who constitute half of society to the liberation of men, and to the dispossessed majority living on the earth." From the Introduction by Nawal El Saadawi, Egypt. "Yes! Finally a ready reckoner when I desperately need to pull out some facts and figures and haven't much time for in-depth research. A wonderfully well done job." Mari Marcel Thekaekara, India"
