Atlas of Women in the World


Good Morning! I want to share a resourceful book I am using for my Women in Developing Countries class. The Penguin Atlas of Women in the World, has a great amount of data on topics concerning women's wages, domestic violence, child labor and underage marriage- just to name a few.

For instance, the following page is dedicated to women and breast cancer. The map displays breast cancer's rate of 100,000 per woman in each country from 2002-2007. The darker green countries having the highest rates of breast cancer. The lowest rates are those countries in bright yellow. The map also shows the number of women who die each week (using data from 2002), with the United States and India holding the highest numbers. I wonder what the commonalities are?

According to the atlas,[breast cancer is highest in the industrialized countries. Europe and North America, home to under one-fifth of the world’s women, account for half of the world’s breast cancer cases].

The Penguin Atlas of Women in the World is a fascinating resource tool! If your a liberal arts major, the information inside could be quite useful.
