"Provides an excellent insight into the practice of development and the contribution that women can and do make to the process."—Haleh Afshar, University of York


Drawn from the contents of the acclaimed journal Development in Practice, this book explores such issues such as "mainstreaming" versus specialization, methodologies for incorporating gender analysis into planning and evaluation, the limitations of gender training, the unintended impacts of women-focused credit programs, and how institutional policies to promote gender equity are often tacitly undermined by patriarchal interests.


Deborah Eade is a writer and editor specializing in international development and humanitarian issues.
