The Lives We Live: Women and Human Development in Zambia: Issues and Debates – a photopack

Price: €12 [out of stock]

This photopack focuses on the issues of women’s rights in Zambia today. Through the use of 32 photographs, a range of different activities, a set of key facts and divergent viewpoints, the resource explores and debates issues such as education, work, HIV and AIDS, and how they impact on women’s lives.

Though focused on Zambia, The Lives We Live raises broader questions and challenges universally particularly as regards gender-based inequality and poses the fundamental question – why is it that today ‘no country treats its women the same as its men’.
