Synopsis: Women's rights have progressed significantly in the last two decades, but major challenges remain in order to end global gender discrimination. The unfinished revolution: Voices from the global fight for women's rights outlines the recent history of the battle to secure basic rights for women and girls, including in the Middle East where the hopes raised by the Arab Spring are yet to be fulfilled. This anthology opens with a foreword by Christiane Amanpour and features essays by more than 30 writers, activists, policymakers and human rights experts, including Nobel laureates Shirin Ebadi and Jody Williams. Most important are contributions from women who have fought against human rights abuses and have become agents of change. Contributors propose new workable solutions to ongoing rights violations including human trafficking and harmful traditional practices such as child marriage and female genital mutilation. As a whole, the book shows that the struggle for women's equality is far from over. It is essential reading for everyone involved in the fight to realise the full potential for half the world's population.

About the Author: As Director of Global Initiatives for Human Rights Watch, Minky Worden develops and implements international outreach and advocacy campaigns. She previously served as Human Rights Watch's Media Director, as an adviser to Democratic Party chairman Martin Lee in Hong Kong, and as a speechwriter at the Justice Department in Washington, DC.
