The anthology celebrates the contribution of women to Papua New Guinean society. It also sets out some of the problems and issues confronting those women in their daily lives. These issues are set out in an eclectic mix of poetry, essays and short stories. The anthology also challenges the myths and stereotypes often associated with the drive to reduce inequalities in Papua New Guinea. The anthology is also an opportunity for Papua New Guineans to recognise and appreciate the women of their nation. Women are active in many fields in Papua New Guinea, occasionally in leadership roles. Papua New Guinean women are doctors and nurses, business leaders, environmental activists, and politicians. Other women in more traditional roles form the backbone of Papua New Guinean society. All of them need to be celebrated. These women are diligently working to advance their country and remedy the wrongs they encounter, even though the task often seems overwhelming. The anthology draws attention to and suggests approaches to the serious challenges Papua New Guinea must address to become the nation it wants to be and which its people need.

In her autobiography, My Walk With God, the author, D. M. Scales, talks about many things. Foremost, she talks about her life and growing up in the South during the oppressive "sixties era."Basically, this was during the civil rights movement, which was a product of inequality along with Jim Crow and "Brown v. Board of Education." Importantly, this was when many blacks wanted to obtain equality. Here, this writer talks about how being black and poverty stricken during the "dark sixties," posed serious problems for her as a youngster. Typically, educated as well as uneducated black Americans were subservient to Jim Crow laws. In contrast, in our society today, blacks have now become better educated, but this writer alludes "not much has changed." The expression "not much has changed" is further exemplified for the reader throughout this autobiography. Drew exemplifies this when she says oppression and discrimination both existed during the sixties, and in the Jim Crow era and yet cohabitates in our society today.

It may well be surprising to say that the world should look to India as a model of gender equality. India’s banking sector proves the exception, with several women reaching the highest positions in India’s top banks, including the country’s largest bank. Based on interviews and surveys of bank employees in India’s National Capital Region, this book looks at what lies behind the media rhetoric and provides a systematic analysis of patterns of, and responses to, gender inequality in the banking sector in India. The book uncovers how gender discrimination still persists in the banking sector, albeit in covert forms. Through a comparison of nationalized, Indian private and foreign banks, the book demonstrates how the impact of laws, local cultural norms and gendered workplace practices are mediated through different organizational forms in these different types of banks to create varied experiences of gender inequality. The book is one of the first books to provide a thorough, in-depth analysis of women’s employment in the Indian banking sector, currently an under-researched area.

"A fascinating look at the lives of the early pioneers...how they navigated, 'without maps or models,' gender and race and sport in the years before Title IX."--Sport in American History. The right to participate in sports and competitive athletics is more than an issue of fair play--it's a matter of human rights. In 1972, Title IX of the Education Amendments became law, transforming sports opportunities for girls and women in the U.S. Based on oral histories, this book chronicles Title IX's impact through the stories of eight women physical educators, coaches, Olympic athletes and administrators. They recall the experience of being female in the mid-20th century, their influential teachers and mentors, and their work to create opportunities. The eight narratives reveal gender, race and class inequity in higher education and athletics and describe how women leaders worked through sports to make women's rights human rights. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Times New Roman'; color: #404040} span.s1 {color: #000000} p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Times New Roman'; color: #404040}

American education as we know it today—guaranteed by the state to serve every child in the country—is still less than a hundred years old. It’s no wonder we haven’t agreed yet as to exactly what role education should play in our society. In these Tanner Lectures, Danielle Allen brings us much closer, examining the ideological impasse between vocational and humanistic approaches that has plagued educational discourse, offering a compelling proposal to finally resolve the dispute. Allen argues that education plays a crucial role in the cultivation of political and social equality and economic fairness, but that we have lost sight of exactly what that role is and should be. Drawing on thinkers such as John Rawls and Hannah Arendt, she sketches out a humanistic baseline that re-links education to equality, showing how doing so can help us reframe policy questions. From there, she turns to civic education, showing that we must reorient education’s trajectory toward readying students for lives as democratic citizens. Deepened by commentaries from leading thinkers Tommie Shelby, Marcelo Suárez-Orozco, Michael Rebell, and Quiara Alegría Hudes that touch on issues ranging from globalization to law to linguistic empowerment, this book offers a critical clarification of just how important education is to democratic life, as well as a stirring defense of the humanities.

"This book explores the persisting gender inequalities and existing cultural beliefs and practices in the field of health, education and work, which focus on the well being of the growing girl. The theoritical backdrop of the study draws on the Convention by the United Nations in 1989. the author has made an attempt to seek some of the emperical and conceptual gaps in the values attached to female education in terms of difference sin schooling oppourtunities, school dropouts, attitudes and aspirations towards educational attainment and links with some deep-rooted featues of gender approach.The author has also discussed the ways in which boys and girls are positioned differently on diverse activities. Identifying reciprocity in the relationship between mother s perception and child well being, the author argues that balanced development of child and his/her quality of life hinges to a great extent on the mother s knowledge about child s well-being.This is an indispensable book for students and researchers who are engaged in gender studies and population studies. The book presents a rich background material with reference to gender equity and equality in Rajasthan and should serve as a guide for planners and policy makers for undertaking appropriate programmes for improving the status of women in society."

Philippe Beneton, a prominent French religious conservative, has long meditated on Tocqueville, and Equality by Default is Tocquevillian in that it does not offer a partisan polemic, but rather paints a picture of contemporary life-a picture that is also a guide for discernment for those who have a difficult time "seeing" contemporary liberalism for what it is. Artfully translated by Ralph Hancock, Equality by Default offers a unique and strikingly insightful account of the late-modern mind.
