An invaluable feminist resource and example of cutting-edge data visualization, this beautifully designed new edition of Seager's award-winning atlas matches the mood of the moment -­ with bold, vivid infographics to illustrate the status of women worldwide and the diversity of their experiences. 'A life-saver and page-turner! This will add to everyone's knowledge and power. Nobody should be without this book.' Gloria Steinem. Joni Seager's visually stunning survey of up-to-the-minute global data redefines what is meant by an atlas. Comprehensive and accessible, her incisive prose combined with the creative use of illustration, charts and infographics portray as never before how women are living across continents and cultures - the advances that have been made and the distances still to be travelled. The result is the most up-to-date global analysis of key issues facing women today: gender equality, literacy and information technology, feminism, the culture of beauty, work and the global economy, changing households, domestic violence, LGBTQ rights, government and power, motherhood, and more.

Listen to Joni Seager talk about her groundbreaking Women's Atlas on BBC Radio 4's Women's Hour (30 min in) and World Service Weekend (38 min in)
