Summary
  • Children's rights advocates initiated a wave of reform at the turn of the century that has steadily gained momentum. Yet despite their tenacity, more than 22 percent of U.S. children lived in poverty in 1994, at least two million children died in wars in the 1980s and 1990s, and only 23 percent of girls in developing countries attend primary school. In this insightful and far-reaching book, the authors outline the history and current state of child advocacy. They explore children's moral and legal rights as they pertain to such issues as health, welfare, education, labor, family, sexual exploitation, and violence. A chronology of events traces developments in children's rights during the twentieth century, and biographical sketches describe key individuals in the field. The authors also examine influential cases and documents, including Supreme Court decisions, legislation, and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child
  • Detailed listings of social movements, government agencies, and international organizations that address children's rights issues and an annotated bibliography of resources add to the thorough coverage of the topic that makes this the most exhaustive source available
