Summary:
"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, and pornography." -- Book cover.
