About this book

Since the classic Women and Development in the Third World was published over a decade ago, a new awareness of the importance of gender roles in development has grown. Globalization, international migration, refugees and conditions of war have brought these issues of gender and development to the public attention. At the same time, gender perspectives have become central to the many United Nations meetings on development, including the Beijing Women's Conference. Gender and Development focuses on these new challenges and the efforts to overcome them through the empowerment of women and men. Individual chapters look at reproduction and health, including the HIV/AIDS epidemic; globalization and issues of production, including new areas of employment such as IT; and environmental topics such as gendered access to resources and ecofeminism. The role of the UN and changes in development organizations attitudes, through gender mainstreaming, are also considered. Gender and Development provides an introduction to the topic that is based on the author's wide field experience. Topical and up-to-date information and analysis are used throughout. This accessible textbook contains a wealth of student-friendly features, including boxed case-studies drawn from around the world, encompassing the transition countries of Eastern and Central Europe and the Central Asian Republics, as well as Latin America and Asia. There are also chapter learning objectives, discussion questions, annotated guides to further reading and websites, and numerous maps and photographs.
