Vol 3 No 2 - Families In A Changing World

Issued: 1994 (36 pages)

This issue marked the Year of the Family, coinciding as it did with the UN Conference on Population and Development in Cairo. It looks at the reality of women’s choices over child-bearing in Africa, at the changing nature of the family -- from the rapid increase in single mothers throughout the world to the new pressures on smaller families. It throws light on the often desperate and neglected plight of widows and describes, with personal stories, the resilience of women in the face of environmental and modernising pressures.
