The impact of science and technology in our daily life can no longer be over emphasised, nor can we continue to marginalise the valuable contributory role of women in the development process. Since the 1975 United Nations Mexico Conference on Women, the world is no longer the same, however, the male dominated world has yet to develop a new mindset and be proactive towards the empowerment of women. We can no longer ignore the role and contribution of women as equal partners in the developmental process of any country. Are the men prepared to change the age-old attitude of domination into one of cooperation and partnership? This is the question Alison Phipps sets out to investigate and provide tangible but scientific answers which may be bitter for some people to accept, but an inspiration to others to continue the fight with more vigour than ever before for the total emancipation and empowerment of women.
