Not a Minute More yanks the often-overlooked problem of violence against women out from the shadows of the international agenda and plants it firmly in the foreground. By positioning the issue as a violation of human rights, a public health problem, and a crime against humanity, it builds on the achievements of women around the world working to create a safe and secure future through legislation, policy creation, and the establishment of social programs.
Based on regional reviews conducted by UNIFEM-commissioned experts and assimilated into one volume, the book gives us an overview of the progress made by women over the last decade, sheds light on the programs and networks that have been ignored outside their own sphere, and examines the challenges ahead. The contributors discuss the next steps to meet forecasted challenges and end violence against women once and for all.
The groundwork for this book was laid by many people including 18 UNIFEM-commissioned international field researchers, dozens of UNIFEM staff in New York and in the regional offices, and Noleen Heyzer, Executive Director of UNIFEM.
