Goal 3 of the United Nations Millennium Declaration of 2000 seeks to "eliminate gender disparity in primary and secondary education, preferably by 2005, and at all levels of education no later than 2015." Buvinic (World Bank) acknowledges that this definition of gender equality has been criticized as too narrow, but argues that its inclusion in the Millennium goals has spurred progress. Contributors to eight chapters discuss conceptual, methodological, and developing countries' issues, and include data on indicators relating to progress toward gender equality in employment, health, and political participation as well as education. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com) / / Upon signing the Millennium Declaration in 2000, the international community committed itself to eight development goals with timebound targets and measurable indicators. The third of these eight goals was to 'promote gender equality and empower women'. The third Millennium Development Goal (MDG3) in the Millennium Declaration has spurred national and international efforts to improve women's situation around the globe. 'Equality for Women: Where Do We Stand on Millennium Goal 3?' tracks countries' progress with implementing and financing MDG3 by examining national experiences and successes with policies and programs. It also contains an assessment of the effectiveness of different strategies in achieving MDG3 and the financial requirements needed to attain MDG3 by 2015. 'Equality for Women' will be useful for gender analysts, policy makers, government officials, and others working to promote gender mainstreaming. / / /
