BOOK REVIEW
Boys Don’t Learn!!!
By Ewa Charkiewicz


On the cover: On the cover is the mixed-media artwork Under the Red, Yellow and Blue by Filipino artist Dang Sering. The artwork’s red, yellow and blue colors depict flag colors to suggest state sovereignty as a force that can alienate and marginalise people, especially women and children. In the cultural diversity debates, the sovereign right of states in policy-making on culture is both reinforced and challenged.

Artwork by Jan "Dang" Virnice T. Sering
Cover design by Jaime Z. Marpa.

Women In Action covers a broad range of issues affecting women globally, but focusing on the particular needs and concerns of women in the Global South, and forwarding a progressive perspective tempered by the experiences of the third world women's movements.

We'd like to hear from you!
