Description

Women make up about half the world‘s population, but women worldwide have had to fight for equal rights - to be able to vote, do the same jobs as men for the same rate of pay, own property, and have the same opportunities in education. This book looks at the campaigns fought throughout history, including suffrage movements around the world, strikes for equal pay, and International Women‘s Day. The struggle by activists continues today to end child marriage and safeguard women in the military. Links to further information help readers find out more about current campaigns and become activists themselves.
