    This book made my ferocious female heart both hurt and hope.It hurt to be reminded of how many places where women are still second class or lower citizens where they are treated like possessions, rather than as people.I pray to the Goddess that Armstrong is right when she proclaims that the status of women in the world is reaching a tipping point I gain some hope from the debate about rape in India and the stiff sentences being handed out there I lose a little hope when I hear that men in E This book made my ferocious female heart both hurt and hope.It hurt to be reminded of how many places where women are still second class or lower citizens where they are treated like possessions, rather than as people.I pray to the Goddess that Armstrong is right when she proclaims that the status of women in the world is reaching a tipping point I gain some hope from the debate about rape in India and the stiff sentences being handed out there I lose a little hope when I hear that men in Egypt are trying to stuff women back into traditional roles.I am reminded that I need to be doing work to support the cause of feminism in the world A useful reminder, when my life is pretty comfortable

    There are very few books I would classify as must read for everyone, but this is one of them.Sally Armstrong, a Canadian journalist who has covered women s issues for many years and was one of the first to break the story of the untenable lives of women under the Taliban regime in Afghanistan, has written a book that exposes the horror of the treatment of women in many cultures We in the west have, for the most part, become complacent about the position of women in society, but there are huge There are very few books I would classify as must read for everyone, but this is one of them.Sally Armstrong, a Canadian journalist who has covered women s issues for many years and was one of the first to break the story of the untenable lives of women under the Taliban regime in Afghanistan, has written a book that exposes the horror of the treatment of women in many cultures We in the west have, for the most part, become complacent about the position of women in society, but there are huge swaths of the world where women live with fear, abuse, extraordinary violence and poverty on a daily basis We need to be aware that the battle for acceptance of women as human beings is not over.At the same time, this is a book of hope because Sally seeks to show how the tide is turning, and although some struggles have undergone setbacks others are progressing and showing success Many of these are driven by individuals, and through the engagement of women who, despite the dangers, understand and take action on the need Moreover, the world of social media is aiding in the struggle as women share information and grow in understanding that their lives do not have to be the way they are Sally believes that the effort to place women globally on an equal footing with men is approaching a tipping point This is an easy and a hard book to read Easy because Sally is a journalist and her book flows like a well written, accessible magazine article with vivid anecdotes mixed in with the hard facts and statistics It is an extraordinarily difficult book to read because she does not pull any punches when it comes to describing the horrors such as rape as a tool of war genocide of the lives of women in many countries I found I had to set the book aside several times to gather my emotions.Let s not call it feminism or women s liberation Those are old words that no longer have cultural resonance or impact She is talking about human rights the rights of women around the world to be human Read it

    The book was writtenlike an article series than a book I didn t really feel like I was readingthan a long article full of stories The stories were familiar, some from the news, some from the excessively long introduction what a monster that was , and I didn t feel that the insights werewellinsightful.It was a great book club book, and it made for great conversation I just really felt like some of that discussion could have been in the book There was only one side presen The book was writtenlike an article series than a book I didn t really feel like I was readingthan a long article full of stories The stories were familiar, some from the news, some from the excessively long introduction what a monster that was , and I didn t feel that the insights werewellinsightful.It was a great book club book, and it made for great conversation I just really felt like some of that discussion could have been in the book There was only one side presented, or if the other side was discussed, it was presented as so patently awful that nobody could possibly see otherwise Now, obviously, nobody thinks that rape or genital mutilation is a good thing, but since there are still women wearing burkas and hijabs, is it not possible that some of these women want to do it That maybe not all are being forced Finally, and most unforgiveable was the fact that there was no real call to arms It was clearly saying this is happening , but there was no clear this is what we can do It seems to be an opportunity missed As I said though, it was a great book for a book club, and a great conversation

    This book is an important and necessary read for anyone who is involved in or believes in humanitarianism or women s equality The first person stories of violence, suffering, and courage interwoven throughout the book are heart wrenching and inspirational at the same time I only had a vague notion of who Sally Armstrong was in the realm of journalism but when 3 women I admire Michele Landsberg, Samantha Nut and Anna Maria Tremonti lent their names to the book I knew it had to be added to m This book is an important and necessary read for anyone who is involved in or believes in humanitarianism or women s equality The first person stories of violence, suffering, and courage interwoven throughout the book are heart wrenching and inspirational at the same time I only had a vague notion of who Sally Armstrong was in the realm of journalism but when 3 women I admire Michele Landsberg, Samantha Nut and Anna Maria Tremonti lent their names to the book I knew it had to be added to my reading list The book did not disappoint I finished reading Ascent of Women about a month ago and I put off writing a review because I didn t think I could do it justice I suppose justice is really what the book is all about I have a new appreciation for what is meant by Don t send a goat send a lawyer

    Truly an AMAZING book It was beyond inspiration with its amazing of how women all over the world are fighting for equality and against violence While I shed many for tears for those who are struggling I am filled with pride for those who are succeeding and there are many I also greatly enjoyed the glimpses into how my own country, Canada, is not stepping up to the plate to deal with the horrible atrocities happening to indigenous women here in Canada.

    Absolutely one of the best books I ve read about women s issues worldwide I love Sally Armstrong and appreciate her inclusion of the entire world not just Afghanistan, though that is her specialty in her discussion of women s rights I also appreciate her positivity women have come a long way in all parts of the world and their successes should be celebrated while also remaining realistic about what else still needs to be done It s happening.

    Progress lies in the direction we haven t been Gloria Steinem p.271 I learned a lot from this book about the different cultures, about countries I didn t realise were struggling so much with issues, and about the women who have stood up to make a difference.I highly recommend this read for anyone wanting to learnabout gender and how so much progress has been made by actually listening to what women have to say.

    Even though this book was written in 2013 I founded it dated Armstrong describes how women are gaining control over their bodies and by speaking out are empowering themselves and improving the world A good premise but she cited too many similar examples for my taste.

    It is hard to say that you like a book when it is about the persecution of women around the world and how they are standing up and legally going after the perpetrators Suffice to say it is extremely well written, very well researched and should be mandatory reading for every female and male teenager to inform and enlighten them about the issues at hand.
