MercatorNet Weekly Update

Hi there,
Here's your MercatorNet weekly update. This week we
have a special issue on Christianity in the developing
world, with reports from our correspondents in Africa
and South America.

Our Deputy Editor Carolyn Moynihan has also interviewed
an expert in children's daycare and explored the loss
of a service ethic amongst women. Her articles make
fascinating reading.

By the way, some of you might not be familiar with
our "Media Watch" feature on the MercatorNet homepage.
Each week we post links to articles which you might like.
If you have suggestions, please send them to us.

Cheers,
Michael Cook
Editor

IF WOMEN DON'T CARE, WHO WILL?
By Carolyn Moynihan
A century ago women served society from the home and
the caring professions. Today, the very idea of service
seems subversive of women's rights.
