This visually stunning survey of up-to-the-minute global data -- from acclaimed policy expert Joni Seager -- illustrates the status of women worldwide and the diversity of their experiences. An invaluable resource, this striking new edition of the award-winning The Women’s Atlas matches the mood of the moment.

Through cutting-edge infographics, the atlas portrays how women are living across continents and cultures—the advances that have been made and the distances still to be travelled. All the key issues facing women today are covered: gender equality, literacy and information technology, feminism, the culture of beauty, work and the global economy, changing households, domestic violence, LGBTQ rights, government and power, motherhood, and more.

‘A life-saver and page-turner…This will add to everyone’s knowledge and power. Nobody should be without this book.’ — Gloria Steinem
