About this book
This book is an important contribution to the general literature on citizenship. It draws on a range of disciplines to address theoretical and policy dilemmas in the construction of women's citizenship. Traditional thinking about citizenship is recast to embrace both rights and political participation in the development of a 'woman-friendly' theory and praxis of citizenship, challenging conventional dichotomies and taking account of the differences between women. The barriers to women's full citizenship are explored, together with strategies for overcoming them.
