A groundbreaking book about the direct relationship between a woman's rights and freedoms and the economic prosperity of her country. This books looks at a variety of widespread, global issues related to gender inequality – such as violence against women, education, women and work, the role of culture – and analyzes the economic impact of the continued disempowerment and devaluation of women and their contributions at all levels of society. Although the Bahá’í Faith and its teachings are not specifically discussed in this book, the findings presented within are inspired by the Bahá’í belief in the fundamental equality of women and men.
