This book starts from the position that gender injustice is the greatest human rights abuse on the planet. It blights First and developing worlds; rich and poor women. It is no exaggeration to describe the position of women as an apartheid, but it is not limited to one country or historical period. "A vital book on how we bring about gender equality" (Jeremy Corbyn).

Details

This book starts from the position that gender injustice is the greatest human rights abuse on the planet. It blights First and developing worlds; rich and poor women. Gender injustice impacts health, wealth, education, representation, opportunity and security everywhere. It is no exaggeration to describe the position of women as an apartheid, but it is not limited to one country or historical period.

For this ancient and continuing wrong is millennial in duration and global in reach. Only radical solutions can even scratch its surface. However, the prize is a great one: the collateral benefits to peace, prosperity, sustainability and general human happiness are potentially enormous. All this because we are all interconnected and all men are of women too.

"A vital book on how we bring about gender equality" (Jeremy Corbyn)

"Thought-provoking ... Chakrabarti draws in every chapter on stories from India or Kenya or Latin America as well as home ... This book is likely to appeal to people who have frankly had enough of reading about the politics of waxing or the deeper meaning of Beyoncé, and who worry that western feminism is in danger of disappearing up itself in pursuit of rather glossy and superficial concerns, but still don't for one minute think the battle is won ... A welcome global perspective on gender injustice (Gaby Hinsliff, The Guardian)
