“It’s a time of change in the world, with dictators toppling and new opportunities rising, but any revolution that doesn’t create equality for women will be incomplete. The time has come to realize the full potential of half the world’s population.” —Christiane Amanpour, from the foreword The Unfinished Revolution tells the story of the global struggle to secure basic rights for women and girls, including in the Middle East where the Arab Spring raised high hopes, but the political revolutions are so far insufficient to guarantee progress. Around the world, women and girls are trafficked into forced labor and sex slavery, trapped in conflict zones where rape is a weapon of war, prevented from attending school, and kept from making deeply personal choices in their private lives, such as whom and when to marry. In many countries, women are second-class citizens by law. In others, religion and traditions block freedoms such as the right to work, study or access health care. Even in the United States, women who are victims of sexual violence often do not see their attackers brought to justice. More than 30 writers—Nobel Prize laureates, leading activists, top policymakers, and former victims—have contributed to this anthology. Drawing from their rich personal experiences, they tackle some of the toughest questions and offer bold new approaches to problems affecting hundreds of millions of women. This volume is indispensable reading, providing thoughtful analysis from a never-before assembled group of advocates. It shows that the fight for women’s equality is far from over. As Leymah Gbowee, 2011 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate says, “Women are not free anywhere in this world until all women in the world are free.”

'In The Global Women's Movement, Antrobus gives us rich historical background, insightful personal reflection, and a keen analysis of the challenges that lie ahead for women's global organizing. This is a must read for all activists, policy makers and scholars who care about the future of equity and justice in the world.' - Charlotte Bunch, Founder and Executive Director, Center for Women's Global Leadership, Rutgers University'This reflection on the international women's movement by one of its most important leaders is both timely and stimulating. Locating its origins in the quest for broader social justice, Peggy Antrobus examines this movement over three decades. She makes the case that if our movement is to continue to find solutions to the problems of human security and well-being, we must deal as seriously with issues of race and class as we do with patriarchy.' - Noeleen Heyzer, Executive Director, UNIFEM'This is a fascinating book where the researcher and the activist come together to tell the history of a revolutionary movement that changed the way we think about gender and sexuality, social justice and human rights, the political economy and power. The author has the authority of someone who was an active participant in many major events of that history.' - Carmen Barroso, Regional Director, International Planned Parenthood Federation, Western Hemisphere Region 'This is a breath-taking attempt at documenting the challenges and triumphs of the Global Women's Movement over the past 30 years, and there are few women in this movement more qualified than Peggy Antrobus to take this on. Peggy brings her immense wealth of experience as a feminist activist, scholar, strategist, thinker and mentor to bear on this book, which is a great resource for women's rights activists everywhere.' Bisi Adeleye-Fayemi, Executive Director, African Women's Development Fund, and President, Association for Women's Rights in Development (AWID).

Researchers increasingly recognize the importance of early family experiences on children and the impact that inter-parental conflict has on child development. This book reviews recent research in order to show how children who experience high levels of inter-parental conflict are put at both an immediate psychological and physical risk and a longer-developing risk of recapitulating such behaviors. The authors examine topics such as the differences between destructive and constructive inter-parental conflict on child development, why some children are more adversely affected than others, and how conflict affects child physiology. Ultimately they provide suggestions for improving the futures of children who are experiencing challenging family environments today.

The vast changes in family life have often been blamed for declining morality and unhappy children. Drawing upon pioneering research with the children of the gender revolution, Kathleen Gerson reveals that it is not a lack of family values, but rigid social and economic forces that make it difficult to live out those values. The Unfinished Revolution makes clear recommendations for a new flexibility at work and at home that benefits families, encourages a thriving economy, and helps women and men integrate love and work.

‘Scattered with inspiring life-stories of courageous women.’ The Guardian In the early years of the People’s Republic, the Communist Party sought to transform gender relations. Yet those gains have been steadily eroded in China’s post-socialist era. Contrary to the image presented by China’s media, women in China have experienced a dramatic rollback of rights and gains relative to men. In Leftover Women, Leta Hong Fincher exposes shocking levels of structural discrimination against women, and the broader damage this has caused to China’s economy, politics, and development.
