Justice, gender, and the politics of multiculturalism
Call Number: HQ1237 .J87 2007
Justice, Gender and the Politics of Multiculturalism explores the tensions that arise when culturally diverse democratic states pursue both justice for religious and cultural minorities and justice for women. Sarah Song provides a distinctive argument about the circumstances under which egalitarian justice requires special accommodations for cultural minorities while emphasizing the value of gender equality as an important limit on cultural accommodation.
Women's human rights : seeking gender justice in a globalizing age
Call Number: K644 .R45 2009
Womens Human Rights: Seeking Gender Justice in a Globalising Age explores the emergence of transnational, UN-oriented, feminist advocacy for womens human rights, especially over the past three decades. It identifies the main feminist influences that have shaped the movement liberal, radical, third world and cosmopolitan and exposes how the Western, legalist, state-centric, and liberal biases of mainstream human rights discourse impede the realisation of human rights in womens lives everywhere. The book traces the evolution of the womens human rights movement through an examination of its key issues, debates, and practical interventions in international law and policy arenas.
Women of Afghanistan in the post-Taliban era : how lives have changed and where they stand today
Call Number: HQ1735.6 .S385 2008
For the women of Afghanistan, remarkable milestones have been achieved since the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban rule in 2001. The gender order has gone through several changes in just a few years, and those changes have brought a wealth of new opportunities and roles for women living and working in Afghanistan. Whereas Afghan women had been largely confined to their homes and prohibited from actively participating in society under the Taliban, these women are now re-entering the workforce, and are employed in education, government, private businesses, or working their own farmland alongside their husbands. This book examines the roles of women in Afghanistan within the context of change and tradition.

Women are completing MBA and Law degrees in record high numbers, but their struggle to attain director positions in corporate America continues. Although explanations for this disconnect abound, neither career counselors nor scholars have paid enough attention to the role that corporate governance plays in maintaining the gender gap in America's executive quarters.Mining corporate governance models applied at Fortune 500 companies, hundreds of Title VII discrimination cases, and proxy statements, Douglas M. Branson suggests that women have been ill-advised by experts, who tend to teach females how to act like their male, executive counterparts.
