Women and Development: Rethinking Policy and Reconceptualizing Practice : Fall/Winter 2003 (Women's Studies Quarterly)
Frances Vavrus, Dianea HopeISBN: 1558614583;
Since the birth of the international Women in Development (WID) movement in the 1970s, feminist scholars, activists, practitioners, and community members have challenged the oft-destructive effects of traditional development models, which frequently ignore the socioeconomic activities and concerns of women. This issue of WSQ takes as its focus the gendered effects of on-the-ground development policies and practices, as well as the growing significance of post-development theory and action in academia. Alongside this close look at current programming and policy trends in development, this timely volume also explores the meaning of development and the programs -designed to achieve it in different geographical contexts, which continue to generatelively feminist debate.
