About this book

This is a contribution to development debates on integrating gender issues into development institutions. The writers are from South and North, women and men, working for or with Oxfam GB and other national Oxfams including Oxfam America and Novib. They chart their experiences in turning words into action on gender issues; and give a critical analysis of failures as well as successes in integrating gender into the work and structures of a development organization. The book is in seven sections, each with an overview and includes between four and six papers.

This account of Oxfam's experience in integrating gender issues in its development and emergency work around the world is refreshing and courageously open... Gender Worksis an unusually insightful, honest book and deserves to be widely read. Indian Journal of Gender Studies.This is a unique text on gender and organisations, which will become required reading for women's units everywhere, and for anyone who has faced the challenge of trying to get gender equality taken seriously. As well as being recommended reading for British Council staff and a key text for our libraries, it is also a very entertaining read - I guarantee you'll find many things in this book which will make you smile in recognition. Network Newsletter (British Council), November 1999.
