Présentation de l'éditeur

From half a million women who die in pregnancy and childbirth to one out of three women suffering domestic violence worldwide, from 90 million girls who do not go to school to HIV/AIDS spreading fastest among adolescent girls, women around the world face unique health challenges. In this searing cradle-to-grave review, Anne Firth Murray tackles health issues from sex selective abortion and unequal access to food and health care to the challenges faced by aging women. Murray makes clear that the issues are social, ethical, and political much more than they are medical, and she goes further to provide hope that positive change can happen.

The true state of women around the world 13 février 2014

This was assigned reading for a university class I am taking. I have lived abroad and think this one of the best accounts of the true state of women's lives. It was at times difficult to read, but very eye opening. This should be required reading for all women in the developed world!

Genuinely interesting and well written 16 avril 2014

As an international relations scholar with specializations on developing nations and gender issues, I highly recommend this book for those with or without a background in the issues covered in the book. If you already have a good grasp of the problems women face in conflict ridden or developing countries you can feel free to skip the introduction as it generally is a good basic overview of those problems. For those who are new to the subject, I highly recommend reading the introduction and considering it before moving on to further chapters. For some, it might be a good idea to read the introduction twice if you are planning to get involved with these issues beyond your own interest.

Wow! Just being born a woman in many countries is a determent to one's health and a life long of struggle. However Anne Firth Murray captivates the true essence of women across the world with her facts and real stories about the courage and strength of the women of the world. Since reading this I am even more fierce and determined to fight for equality for all.

Excellent book. It gives facts and is easy to read. I recommend it to anyone interested in women's studies, women's rights and women's health. It is also a good resource to anyone wanting to volunteer or help in any of the areas mentioned.
