Description :

Language: English Brand New Book. Seeking to catalyze innovative thinking and practice within the field of women and gender in development, editors Jane S. Jaquette and Gale Summerfield have brought together scholars, policymakers, and development workers to reflect on where the field is today and where it is headed. The contributors draw from their experiences and research in Latin America, Asia, and Africa to illuminate the connections between women s well-being and globalization, environmental conservation, land rights, access to information technology, employment, and poverty alleviation. Highlighting key institutional issues, contributors analyze the two approaches that dominate the field: women in development (WID) and gender and development (GAD). They assess the results of gender mainstreaming, the difficulties that development agencies have translating gender rhetoric into equity in practice, and the conflicts between gender and the reassertion of indigenous cultural identities. Focusing on resource allocation, contributors explore the gendered effects of land privatization, the need to challenge cultural traditions that impede women s ability to assert their legal rights, and women s access to bureaucratic levers of power. Several essays consider women s mobilizations, including a project to provide Internet access and communications strategies to African NGOs run by women. In the final essay, Irene Tinker, one of the field s founders, reflects on the interactions between policy innovation and women s organizing over the three decades since women became a focus of development work. Together the contributors bridge theory and practice to point toward productive new strategies for women and gender in development. Contributors.

Synopsis : Seeking to catalyze innovative thinking and practice within the field of women and gender in development, editors Jane S. Jaquette and Gale Summerfield have brought together scholars, policymakers, and development workers to reflect on where the field is today and where it is headed. The contributors draw from their experiences and research in Latin America, Asia, and Africa to illuminate the connections between women's well-being and globalization, environmental conservation, land rights, access to information technology, employment, and poverty alleviation. Highlighting key institutional issues, contributors analyze the two approaches that dominate the field: women in development (WID) and gender and development (GAD). They assess the results of gender mainstreaming, the difficulties that development agencies have translating gender rhetoric into equity in practice, and the conflicts between gender and the reassertion of indigenous cultural identities. Focusing on resource allocation, contributors explore the gendered effects of land privatization, the need to challenge cultural traditions that impede women's ability to assert their legal rights, and women's access to bureaucratic levers of power. Several essays consider women's mobilizations, including a project to provide internet access and communications strategies to African NGOs run by women. In the final essay, Irene Tinker, one of the field's founders, reflects on the interactions between policy innovation and women's organizing over the three decades since women became a focus of development work.

Critique: "This important collection provides a much-needed fresh look at women, gender, and development. Jane S. Jaquette and Gale Summerfield's overview chapter is superb."--Valentine M. Moghadam, UNESCO "This book begins with a very important question: is there a crisis in the gender and development field despite its large expansion and growing complexity? The different contributors address this question, directly or indirectly, from an interdisciplinary perspective. From the analysis of changing institutions to the control of resources, political participation, gender mainstreaming, and many other relevant themes, the book makes an excellent contribution to the historical analysis of the field and its current developments and tensions. There is much food for thought here."--Lourdes Beneria, author of Gender, Development, and Globalization: Economics as if All People Mattered "This excellent collection by leading scholars and policy actors sets the ongoing gender and development debate in the context of the changing international political and policy climate. In bringing different regional perspectives to bear on the new challenges facing gender justice advocates, it updates critical thinking on the urgency of applying gender analysis to development policy, human security, and globalization."--Maxine Molyneux, author of Women's Movements in International Perspective: Latin America and Beyond
