Summary "It was not until the second half of the twentieth century that a few countries began granting women the right to participate in public institutions as individuals. Until then, women were incorporated into various domains of life mainly through their relational roles as mothers. In From Motherhood to Citizenship, Nitza Berkovitch argues that this trend is not confined to specific countries, but represents a worldwide phenomenon." "Berkovitch offers the first detailed account of the critical role played by international organizations in the promotion of women's rights by individual nation-states."--Jacket.
