"From Africa to Asia to the Americas, women are the key to progress on ending poverty, violence, and conflict. Award-winning humanitarian and journalist Sally Armstrong shows us why empowering women and girls is the way forward, and she introduces us to the leading females who are making change happen, from Nobel Prize winners to little girls suing for justice. Uprising examines the stunning courage, tenacity, and wit these change-makers are using to alter the status quo. From mud-brick houses in Afghanistan to the forests of Congo to a shelter in northern Kenya, where 160 girls have won an historic court case against a government who did not protect them from rape, Uprising is about the final frontier for women: having control over your own body, whether in zones of conflict, in rural villages, on university campuses, or in your own kitchen. In this landmark book, Sally Armstrong brings us the voices of the women all over the world whose bravery is changing the world as we know it"-- Provided by publisher.

If Sally Armstrong was truly a human rights activist she would have more thoroughly researched the background of Hillary Rodham Clinton [and her husband]!
Also, Armstrong supports the status quo forever in her writings, never looking a bit deeper to uncover the connection between corporatization and privatization and the troubles which ensued. Regarding the Arab Spring, a little investigation would have uncovered the fact that those NGOs involved tracked back to the State Department and CIA - - leading one to a most logical conclusion. Whether in Bosnia, or Malawi, please do not take this author, or the CorporateMedia, at face value, but attempt to verify everything she claims!
When the Clinton/Obama Trans-Pacific Partnership passes, any existing glass ceilings will be the least of the majority's worries, as we will all be living in a giant dark pit! Note to author: HRC is no leftie, dearie!
