Description

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.
