While women’s movements in Latin America and elsewhere have succeeded in putting many issues that are relevant to women and to gender relations onto the political agenda, and although most international aid agencies have made efforts to incorporate gender analysis into their work, this progress has been neither comprehensive nor unproblematic. This article focuses on ways in which the development cooperation agenda, and the priorities and working methods of development agencies and NGOs, have served to distort the vision and practice of the women’ s organisations whose work they seek to support.

This article is hosted by our co-publisher Taylor & Francis.
