I picked this up to brush up on my knowledge of feminism. It's a very short book, I finished it in a couple hours. It gives you a general overview of the issues involved in women's rights but doesn't really go into things in a lot of detail. I found it rather simplistic but it does offer a lot of statistics and examples of how women have fought for their rights. A majority of the book covers the situation outside of North America, which is a good reminder that although things may seem pretty good in the west, women around the world are still being oppressed.
