Working Toward Abolishing Poverty (Paperback)
Huge numbers of people in developing countries and up to one quarter of populations in developed countries live below the poverty line. Poverty is linked to migration, warfare, low-skilled work, and women's and children's rights. This book looks at some of the key anti-poverty campaigns and activists, from Josephine Butler to campaigners today tackling period poverty and setting up microbanks. Links to further information help readers find out more about current campaigns and become activists themselves.
