Description & Coverage
Description:

Recently, greater emphasis has been placed on the fact that women, regardless of whether they are located in developed or developing nations, are still facing numerous challenges regarding their financial status, education, and independence. As recent movements have highlighted such problems as unequal pay and sexual harassment and abuse, it has become imperative that steps must be taken to analyze these problems and offer solutions to combat these inequalities that would improve women’s lives and society as a whole.

Overcoming Challenges and Barriers for Women in Business and Education: Socioeconomic Issues and Strategies for the Future is an essential reference source that highlights cross-cultural perspectives, obstacles, and opportunities pertaining to the advancement of women’s lives in society. The chapters within the book explore a variety of concepts for building a bridge to women empowerment and improving their participation in the development of their respective societies. Featuring research on topics such as global business, higher education, and gender discrimination, this book is ideally designed for managers, business professionals, entrepreneurs, social scientists, policymakers, gender studies researchers, students, and academicians looking for strategies that will help to empower women through the book’s social justice model, which acts as an underlying theoretical construct.
