Hundreds of women’s information centers and archives, their activities as diverse as their geographies, are working to strengthen the position of women. They aim to empower women, give them a voice and keep women’s history alive. By providing information specific to women, they contribute to effective policy decisions and advocacy.This book is intended to be especially relevant to resource-poor areas and those working to include those areas in networks. It considers the impact of information technology, including the potential of electronic networking, and contains information on Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Central and Eastern Europe, and the former USSR. A directory of information services, an annotated bibliography and a resource list supplement this. Published in association with KIT Publishers.
