Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the perspective of development specialists and feminist activists, this book considers the challenges facing gender and development practitioners and policy-makers in the 21st century. Despite some successes women in many countries remain in abject poverty, lacking food, clean water, education and medical care. Women throughout the world are still economically, politically and socially marginalised at a time when the globalisation of business, industry and communications technology is radically changing our world. But who is deciding the rules af this stateless society and how can women and men who live in poverty challenge them? What other questions do gender and development workers face? Possible answers come from Ruth Pearson, Madhu Bala Nath, Peter Sternberg and Judy El-Bushra.

Synopsis:

This collection considers the key challenges facing development practitioners and policy-makers in a world where "McDonald's outlets are located beside shanty towns and trafficked sex workers and international financiers increasingly coexist within a few meters of each other". The contributors examine how globalization affects gender relations and shapes women's and men's choices and chances. The book includes innovative case studies of current gender-sensitive development work, focusing on topical issues such as the acknowledgement of sexuality as a development issue. List of resources.
