Each one of us lives life as a carrier of multiple identities – including gender, race, class, and age. The sum of these identities determines our opportunities in life, and empowers or disempowers us, depending on our context. Gender, Development, and Diversity focuses on the implications that this has for the development goals of poverty alleviation and human rights. In particular, critiques from Southern women challenge development organisations for their inadequate and inappropriate diversity policy and practice. Development programmes have addressed gender inequality as a key concern, but most organisations have yet to understand how other aspects of difference intersect with gender to unite and divide groups of women from each other.
