The Issues

* Who's (Not) in Power: Peace and Politics
* How Many of Who: The Demographics
* Who Lives Longer: Health
* Who's in School: Education

This is only a selection of issues, not a comprehensive set. The Platform of Action -- the final document of the Fourth World Conference on Women -- puts down 12 main concerns for women.

Most of the information is based on two sources: "Women at a glance", published by the United Nations Department of Public Information and "The World's Women 1995: Trends and Statistics", UN Publications. The latter is available from the United Nations bookshop. For some explanations and data UNICEF's Progress of Nations 1996 was used.
