'When is an atlas a page-turner? When it makes the female half of the world visible in reliable statistics and glorious graphics. Nobody should be without this book.' Gloria Steinem 'A wonderfully illuminating and clear sighted book. Essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the reality of women's lives worldwide.' Melissa Benn 'A fascinating atlas. It is not only an invaluable reference book, but also throws up questions about why a woman's lot is not as good as a man's.'
