Women and the Family
Looking at factors as diverse as the pervasiveness of patriarchy, changing family forms, female infanticide, and land reform policies, this collection of articles considers the family from a gender perspective, and how the socially prescribed roles of men and women within the family can constrain women's opportunities. We need to understand the underlying power structures and expectations which, operate in particular family forms within target communities, if development initiatives and family-support policies are to benefit women.
