In 2016, women around the world are still fighting for their right to equality, even in the countries we think of as the most developed. Although in many areas, the gap has narrowed in recent years, gender inequality is still common in the labour market and in politics. To mark International Women’s Day 2016, we’ve put together a collection of books, journal articles, online products, and blog posts to celebrate the achievements of women, highlight current issues such as the gender pay gap, and acknowledge the steps that have been taken towards gender equality. The extracts featured on the map each focus on an issue, fact, or problem from around the world.
