About the Book

In the wake of the 4th World Conference on Women this volume brings together leading gender and development scholars who interrogate the last twenty years of work in this area.

Feminist Visions of Development throws fresh light on key issues including:

* gender and the environment

* education

* population

* reproductive rights

* industrialisation

* macroeconomic policy

* poverty.

Inspired by recent feminist theoretical work, it re-examines previous structural analysis and opens the way for further research in the field.


This book is a valuable contribution to the field of gender and development as it offers refreshing retrospective essays by some leading scholars.Scholars, researchers, activists, policy makers and advanced students interested in gender and development issues can celebrate the 'coming of age' of gender analysis of development by reading this book. - Nesecan Balkan, Department of Economics, Hamilton College, USA reviews for Radical political Economics, 2002
