Gender Equity: Global Policies and Perspectives on Advancing Social Justice provides an in-depth analysis of global perspectives on advancing public and social gender policy. Shedding new light on inequalities faced by women and girls around the world,, the essays in this collection emphasize cultural biases and societal prejudices women face in STEM and in creative economies as well as in political decision making processes. In doing so, the volume highlights the interlinked relationship between the advancement of global policy and the very interpretation of gender equality.

I love how the book crosses disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries to offer a kaleidoscopic adventure which raises ‘novel ideas, puzzles, controversies, and debates’ around feminist perspectives on women and politics. This book offers an impressive and incisive thought leadership on women in science, politics, policy, peace, place, art, and leadership itself.
