Liberating Women by Michele Lonsdale
Call Number: NFS 305.40994 LON
Publication Date: 1997-06-28
Looking at the lives of Australian women in the period 1960 to 1990, this work begins by building up a picture of women's lives during the 1950s and goes on to look at the following years in greater detail. For many Australians, women's liberation of the 1960s and 1970s signalled a positive change in women's working and living conditions as well as in basic assumptions about the role of women in society. By the 1990s many of the fundamental changes in relation to women's lives in the previous 30 years were taken for granted. This book highlights the advances made over this 30 year period.

UNESCO World Atlas of Gender Equality in Education
Gender inequality doesn’t make sense on any level. Promoting gender equality can reduce extreme poverty and hunger and boost shared prosperity for girls and boys, women and men, around the world.
Years of conflict, poverty and gender inequality has made going to school difficult and often dangerous for girls in Afghanistan. In 2009, 95 percent of girls did not go to secondary school. CARE is working with secondary school age girls and their families and communities to keep them in school - helping them reach their potential and follow their dreams.
UNESCO- Gender Equality
The first-ever study on men and masculinity in the Middle East and North Africa by UN Women and Promundo surveyed 10,000 men across Egypt, Morocco, Lebanon and Palestine. While unequal attitudes dominate, a significant minority support some forms of equality between men and women, especially if they saw their fathers doing the same.
