About this book

Despite various decades of research and claim-making by feminist scholars and movements, gender remains an overlooked area in development studies. Looking at key issues in development studies through the prisms of gender and feminism, the authors demonstrate that gender is an indispensable tool for social change.

Reviews

“Under Development: Gender is … clearly about concepts and viewpoints that influence our thinking on gender and development. … provide a history of feminist thought on development, summarising and analysing a body of literature very valuable to both old and new generations of those concerned with development issues and intentions. … provides a valuable set of signposts for those engaged in development work, of which we should all take notice, whether we are academics and researchers or practitioners, or both.” (Ines Smyth, Gender & Development, Vol. 23 (3), November, 2015)
