  2. Q&A with the Editors of Global Perspectives on Gender and Space: Engaging Feminism and Development

    Feminism has re-shaped the way we think about equality, power relations and social change. Recent feminist scholarship has provided new theoretical frameworks, methodologies and empirical analyses of how gender and feminism are situated within the development process. Global Perspectives on Gender and Space: Engaging Feminism and Development draws upon this framework to explore the effects of globalization on development in diverse geographical contexts. It explores how women’s and men’s lives are gendered in specific spaces as well as across multiple landscapes. We recently spoke with the editors, Ann M. Oberhauser and Ibipo Johnston-Anumonwo, about the field of gender and development studies and what led them to write this book.
