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, globalisation, and poverty in the North, the contributors bring new insights into the 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.
