Nearly 18 million Americans voted for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in the 2008 Democratic Primary elections. Sixteen of the current U.S. senators are women. Some glass ceilings are being broken, but at the same time, there were only 12 female CEOs of Fortune 500 companies in 2007. After three waves of feminism of the course of more than a century, where do women stand in today's world? 

The Multimedia Encyclopedia of Women in Today's World looks at women today and delves into contexts of being female in the 21st century. Thus, the scope of the encyclopedia focuses on women's status starting approximately in the year 2000 and looks forward. From A-to-Z, this work covers the spectrum of defining women in the contemporary world. In keeping with the focus on the contemporary context, this is not a static work; rather, after initial publication (in both print and electronic versions), significant annual updates will be available for purchase that add new content and fresh, new multimedia to this electronic version.
