Description - Women & Power: Griffith Review 40 by Julianne Schultz

A timely and groundbreaking edition of Griffith REVIEW exploring the changing relationship between women and power in public and private spheres, in Australia and the world.

In one generation, women have taken control of their economic fate, risen to the most powerful political positions in the land and climbed to the top of the corporate ladder. Yet a misogynist undercurrent persists.

The impact of this gender revolution extends across society-from homes to schools, politics to the military, marriage to media-challenging long-held verities.

In Women & Power, Griffith REVIEW brings an international perspective to these dilemmas, exploring the changing relationship between women and power in public and private spheres, here and overseas.

Have social changes caught up with economic changes? Are children paying a price for the rise of the two-income household? Can women have it all? Does it matter whether Julia Gillard's fruit bowl is empty or full?

Women & Power offers provocative and insightful perspectives on these questions. The empowerment of women was one of the great changes of the past fifty years-handling its consequences remains a pressing challenge.
