The expansion of married women's property rights was a main achievement of the first wave of feminism in Latin America. As Carmen Diana Deeere and Magdalena Leon reveal, however, the disjuncture between rights and actual ownership remains vast. This is particularly true in rural areas, where the distribution of land between men and women is highly unequal. In their pioneering, twelve-country comparative study, the authors argue that property ownership is directly related to women's bargaining power within the household and community, point out changes resulting from recent gender-progressive legislation, and identify additional areas for future reform, including inheritance rights of wives.

With the 21st century upon us, many people are talking about all the ''earth changes'' that will occur. However, in this inspirational book, best-selling author Louise L. Hay reveals that the primary changes we will see will be internal changes. She points out that when we, as women, are willing to shift our internal ground, our earth, we will operate on a much more expanded level in life. Louise's goal is to see that all women experience self-love, self-worth, self-esteem, and a powerful place in society. In her inimitably warm and forthright manner, she offers penetrating insights into how women of all ages and backgrounds can achieve this goal and make the coming years the most productive, fulfilling, and empowering ones ever!

Women have struggled for a long time to have more dominion over their own lives. Louise L. Hay, author of You Can Heal Your Life, The Power Is Within You, and Life: Reflections on YourJourney, shows you how to become a strong and powerful being. She emphasizes that no matter what your past was like, you can learn to empower yourself and rise to the top. Some of the points Louise makes are: Developing self-worth and self-esteem are the most powerful tools women can have, a modern woman has the whole world in front of her—she can rise as high as her belief in herself; joy and happiness are always within you; you do not have to feel incomplete without a man by your side; and your most important relationship is with yourself.

Julie Hemment's engrossing study traces the development encounter through interactions between international foundations and Russian women's groups during a decade of national collapse. Prohibited from organizing independently under state socialism, women's groups became a focus of attention in the mid-1990s for foundations eager to promote participatory democracy, but the version of civil society that has emerged (the "third sector") is far from what Russian activists envisioned and what donor agencies promised. Drawing on ethnographic methods and Participatory Action Research, Hemment tells the story of her introduction to and growing collaboration with members of the group Zhenskii Svet (Women's Light) in the provincial city of Tver'.

How do we interrupt the current paradigms of sexism in the academy? How do we construct a new and inclusive gender paradigm that resists the dominant values of the patriarchy? And why are these agendas important not just for women, but for higher education as a whole? These are the questions that these extensive and rich analyses of the historical and contemporary roles of women in higher education— as administrators, faculty, students, and student affairs professionals—seek constructively to answer. In doing so they address the intersection of gender and women’s other social identities, such as of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, class, and ability. This book addresses the experiences and position of women students, from application to college through graduate school, and the barriers they encounter; the continuing inequalities in the rates of promotion and progression of women and other marginalized groups to positions of authority, and the gap in earnings between men and women; and pays particular attention to how race and other social markers impact such disparities, contextualizing them across all institutional types. Written collaboratively by an intergenerational group of women, men, and transgender people with different social identities, feminist perspectives, and professional identities— and who, in the process, built upon each other’s work—this volume constitutes a call to educators and scholars to work toward centering feminist and other marginalized perspectives in their practice and research in order to equitably address the evolving complexities of college and university life. Employing a wide range of theoretical lenses, examining a variety of models of practice, and giving voice to a diversity of personal experiences through narrative, this is a major contribution to the scholarship on women in higher education. This is a book for all women in the academy who want to better understand their experience, and to dismantle the remaining barriers of sexism and oppression—for themselves, and future generations of students.

"From the holy city of Amritsar, India, To the Mecca of International Peace, The United Nations… an inspiring journey of the first woman in the Indian Police Service! What a national revolution it would be if each one of us were to self-police! Policing is the Power to Correct, the Power to Prevent, and the Power to get things done. It is the most effective protector of human rights just as it could be its worst violator” – this was a part of my acceptance speech on receiving the Ramon Magsaysay Award in 1994. “Police services in India are getting tougher by the day. They can be made simpler and effective only if the paths of truth and nonviolence are followed. There is a desperate need to lead the services the right way – with vision and commitment. Unless the service wants to be led by Generals who have no army, leadership must come from within the service and be groomed down the line”. Kiran Bedi in her usual refreshingly candid style, shares wideranging issues which have angered, inspired, or fascinated her. Through her matter of fact style of writing, she draws her readers into situations that they may either not have access to or may tend to ignore. Indian Police Issues… As I See… is a persistent effort by the author to encourage greater awareness about various social the hope to invoke, provoke, and inspire readers to heightened levels of sensitivity, participation, and response.

This paper reviews how women in the developing world access and use information and communication technology (ICT). It examines the discourse and controversies surrounding the digital gender divide, including links to poverty and illiteracy. Major themes concerning women and ICTs are explored, such as women in the ICT workforce, how girls and women relate differently to ICT, and opportunities and barriers for women in science and technology in general. Current research relating to gender and ICT is often country-specific and is more prevalent in developed countries than in developing countries. This paper suggests where additional research is needed on barriers to women s entry and access to ICT. The overall objective of this paper is to influence policy dialogue around women and ICT for development by raising awareness of the digital gender divide. Economic opportunity for women in ICT will not be realized until policies address gender considerations and ensure that ICT investment contributes to more sustainable and equitable development.

This dissertation advocates for the role of social enterprise in building sustainable peace by giving women agency and power in their communities. It examines this phenomenon through the lens of a social enterprise non-governmental organization, 31 Bits, that offers a valuable case study in the post-conflict Northern Uganda town of Gulu where over 100 women have been employed in the last ten years in a five-year training program that equips them to become fully self-sustainable through the creation of jewelry handmade from recycled paper. The holistic approach moves beyond the nonprofit model of charity and survival to giving their beneficiaries the chance to thrive. In this way, it is not relief or rescue work but rather informal sustainable peace development. When women are economically empowered their communities are closer to reaching gender equality and achieving positive peace. This qualitative research approach utilizes the phenomenology framework by gathering data through an interview process to measure the results of a business-training program through a social enterprise. Overall impact shows an advancement of women in leadership and peace and development in a post conflict region for the purpose of policy recommendation. The research contributes to a gap in the field examining the role of social enterprise and business training as a tool for women's economic empowerment. In addition to policy creation and implementation the significance of the study is most useful for those seeking to understand approaches to peacebuilding, social enterprise as a tool of development, advancing women's rights through cultural means, and examining the effectiveness of economic empowerment through the tools of microfinance, business training, and entrepreneurship.
