From the perspectives of development specialists and feminist activists, this book considers the challenges facing gender and development practitioners and policy-makers in the twenty first century. Despite some successes, women in many countries remain in abject poverty, lacking food, clean water, education, and medical care. Women throughout the world are still economically, politically and socially marginalised, at a time when the globalisation of business, industry, and communications technology is radically changing our world. But who is deciding the rules of this ‘stateless society’, and how can women and men who live in poverty challenge them? What other questions do gender and development workers face? Possible answers come from Ruth Pearson, Madhu Bala Nath, Peter Sternberg and Judy El-Bushra.
