Publisher Comments:

This collection of articles critically assesses the degree to which gender inequality has been addressed in the work of development organizations. Contributors scrutinize the efforts of governments and NGOs, at the national and international levels, in order to assess the difference that gender mainstreaming has made to advancing women??'s interests in development. In addition, they consider the progress that development organizations have made in ensuring women??'s fullest participation at all levels of their own organizations. Contributions to this volume include case studies from Bolivia, South Africa, India, and Thailand. Among the authors are Caroline Moser, Annalise Moser, Aruna Rao, David Kelleher, and Shamim Meer.

Book News Annotation:

Gender mainstreaming has been defined as "a strategy which aims to bring about gender equality and advance women's rights by infusing gender analysis, gender-sensitive research, women's perspectives and gender equality goals into mainstream policies, projects and institutions." In this text, eight papers look critically at how gender mainstreaming has been carried out in organizations involved in development, assess its impact, and consider future directions. Covering governmental and non-governmental organizations, the essays variously focus on gender mainstreaming efforts at the local, national, and international levels. Distributed in the US by Stylus.
