Gender, Development and Poverty
Over the past 50 years, billions of dollars and working days have been expended on the development of countries in Africa, Latin America, Asia and the Pacific. The alleviation of poverty is the primary concern of many - though not all - organisations working in the development sector. This book examines how gender inequalities impact on men’s, women’s and children’s experiences of poverty and demonstrates the importance of integrating gender analysis into every aspect of development initiatives. Covering a range of issues including macro-level neo-liberal restructuring, poverty reduction strategies, gender budgets, education, HIV/AIDS, globalization and poverty in the north, the contributors bring new insights into impacts of gender-blind development policies at all levels. They show how gender equality forms an integral part of development which must be mainstreamed into all poverty alleviation programmes and development initiatives if these are to create positive outcomes for poor people.
