SISTERHOOD IS GLOBAL
Robin Morgan (Ed.)
Sisterhood is Global has been revered as the essential feminist text on the international women's movement since its first appearance. It features original essays from a deliberately eclectic mix of women activists, politicians, scholars, writers, and social scientists, representing 70 countries, which celebrate the similarity and diversity of women's experience and reveal shared strategies for feminist solidarity and political transformation. Each country's essay is preceded by a statistical preface data on the status of women which, despite dramatic geopolitical changes since the book's initial publication, remains virtually the same.
Sisterhood is Global became an instant classic and remains unequalled in its breadth and comprehensiveness. It includes moving essays from such distinguished writers as Marjorie Agos'n, Ama Ata Aidoo, Simone de Beauvoir, Fatima Mernissi, Nawal El Saadawi, Marilyn Waring, and Ziao Lu. With a new preface by Robin Morgan.

WOMAN'S ROLE IN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
Boserup analyses how women have been affected by the breakdown in village-based production and by male migration to cities, and proposes new forms of education for women to ensure their participation in the modern labour force. This new edition of her classic work is superb background for those concerned with women's role in the development process.
