Summary of The Means of Reproduction Summary of The Means of Reproduction Reviews for The Means of Reproduction An Excerpt from The Means of Reproduction
A groundbreaking new work on the global battle over reproductive rights by the author of The New York Times bestseller Kingdom Coming
Award-winning journalist Michelle Goldberg shows how the emancipation of women has become the key human rights struggle of the twenty-first century in The Means of Reproduction. Deeply reported across four continents, the book explores issues such as abortion, female circumcision, and Asia's missing girls to dramatize the connections between international policymaking and individual lives. Goldberg demonstrates how women's rights are key to addressing both overpopulation and rapid population decline, reducing world poverty, and retarding the spread of AIDS. Sweeping and ambitious, this is a must-read book for feminists, health and policy workers, and anyone concerned about the future of our world.
