Local Action/Global Change:
Learning About the Human Rights of Women and Girls
Julie Mertus with Nancy Flowers and Mallika Dutt, UNIFEM, 1999. Paperback.

This extensive 250 page book can be used by adult groups as well as in a classroom. Each chapter provides information, statistics and illustrative examples of both human rights abuses and victories, and culminates with an exercise in which participants can create a "document" that would protect that right for women. There also are numerous consciousness raising activities, role playing and otherwise, that bring attention to the issues around women and their universal rights.
