Women and Politics in a Global World, Third Edition, is the only text that offers a cross-national and comparative examination of the impact of women on politics–and the impact of politics on women. Sarah L. Henderson and Alana S. Jeydel carefully consider women’s participation in institutionalized politics, social protest, and nationalist, fundamentalist, and revolutionary movements.
To help make the material more accessible to students, the authors unify their discussions around four core areas:
* The assurance of women’s safety and autonomy
* Reproductive rights and health care for mothers and children
* Equal access to employment and public resources
* Women’s access to political institutions and positions of authority
