It received coverage in the local newspapers and also featured in television evening news broadcasts.

The book is a collection of articles from eleven authors examining the enabling factors and barriers to women’s voice, work and bodily integrity in South Asia. It was developed from papers presented at the Pathways South Asia scoping workshop held in Dhaka in August 2006. ‘Mapping Women’s Empowerment’ is edited by Firdous Azim and Maheen Sultan and published by University Press Limited. The book will appeal to anyone interested in issues of equal opportunity, gender discrimination and human rights in the Sub-Continent.
