Due to some of my other reading, the information contained here is not entirely new for me, but it would serve as a great starter for anyone looking to understand the state of women in the world today, the progress that we are making, and the vision for the road ahead.
The book is optimistic without being naive, acknowledging both the current progress and that which we have lost along the way. The plight of feminism appears to follow "two steps forward, one step back" in its overall path. Progress gets made, a little at a time. We are in an interesting era for everyone, for women, and for feminism. This book brings the reader along on the journey of women around the world as it is today, it shows us what is happening outside of our bubble.
Like I mentioned above, it's a great starter or even if you're a few books in. There were a few organizations mentioned that I'd never heard of but most of them were familiar. Maybe you'll find something new too!
Overall great book!
