Abstract

This chapter discusses how the United States and the Soviet Union used the status of women as a measure of national progress. The chapter also discusses the factors that led to the breakdown of the Cold War paradigms for women's rights and describes how non-aligned countries challenged the early Cold War agenda and worked toward a more nuanced approach to the global improvement of women's status.
