This examination of the economic and social well-being of women in industrialized and developing countries identifies common factors that contribute to women's impoverishment and shows that the shared nature of these largely personal problems makes them global human rights issues. Knowledge of these issues from a global perspective is the first step toward formulating and implementing policies and practices that can empower women in ways that will promote worldwide social justice.
