This comprehensive training manual includes the whole spectrum of women's human rights in an "interactive" format by combining the development of rights awareness with issue-oriented activities that include discussions, role-play, story-telling and creative expression in art and music. Local Action/Global Change includes substantive information about the human rights of women in such areas as violence, health, reproduction and sexuality, education, the global economy, the workplace, and family life. Each chapter connects the discussion to specific provisions of international agreements. This innovative book addresses many audiences: advocates for women's human rights, students, educators, and grassroots women.
