The Palgrave Macmillan/Amnesty International series illuminates the greatest human rights issues facing the world today.

From human trafficking to poverty, terrorism to freedom of expression, this dynamic and accessible series encourages debate about the situation today and, the path we took to get here, allowing people with many different perspectives to tell their own stories of struggle. "Global in scope, Created Equal combines facts, anecdotes, and voices from far-flung places, ethnic origins, and social strata to pierce our hearts and call us to account.

Every person who claims to be a citizen of the world must read this book.

Every person who claims a conscience will be compelled to act on what they learn." - Dorothy Allred Solomon, author of In My Father's House and The Sisterhood Created Equal is a frank and clear-sighted introduction to the current state of women's rights globally.

Millions of women throughout the world suffer from violence, poverty and denial of their human rights because of their gender. By exploring their stories, and hearing the views of both advocates for and opponents of women's rights, Anna Horsbrugh-Porter reveals the real human costs of the violation of these rights.

Among the issues covered in this book are: -prostitution -violence against women -abortion rights -education -slavery -pornography
