Ninety million women alive today have endured genital mutilation. Nearly every Tutsi woman who survived the massacres in Rwanda was raped. Ninety nine per cent of foetuses aborted after pre-natal screening in Bombay were female.

Only weeks before the Fourth United Nations Conference on Women in Beijing, Index looks beyond Beijing's economic agenda to examine the issues that lie at the heart of women's continuing fight against social, cultural and political subjection.
With contributions from Erica Jong, Naila Kabeer, Caroline Moorehead, Ludmila Petrushevskaya.
