After a thorough explanation of why women lack equal power, Burn suggests what we might do to change this condition. This activist perspective offers the reader a clear understanding of the steps that can be taken to improve the circumstances of women’s lives.

Women Across Cultures examines contemporary women's issues and empowerment from a global perspective. Gender inequality is examined as a historical, sociocultural phenomenon within the context of interlocking systems of inequality such as racism, colonialism, and economic injustice.

A strong emphasis is given to the variety of approaches and actions women take to promote gender equality and to influence women's progress. The influence of intersectional and contextual factors on women's issues, activism, and movements are a key focus.

This textbook examines the role that culture plays in women’s past oppression and future equality, but argues that the most important issue facing women—their lower status and power—is universal.
