Building on the highly successful first issue in 1990, the 1995 issue provides information and analyses to highlight the economic, political and social differences that still separate women and men. It traces changes that have taken place in the last two decades in the situation of women in the areas of health, education, family life, work and public life. New topics include migration and refugees, reproductive health, women in the media and violence against women. The book presents detailed indicators on women's conditions worldwide and underlines work that must be done to further develop gender statistics.
