Product Overview

Although women often bear the heaviest burden under structural adjustment in Third World countries, there is considerable evidence of women being empowered through their responses to the challenges of economic restructuring. Based on case study material from around the world, this volume explores the significant contributions women make to the wealth and well-being of their families and nations, arguing that women may hold the key to "sustainable" development. Embodying the new "gender and development" paradigm, the book reports on research at the frontiers of knowledge and theory about the gendered outcomes of economic transformation, restructuring, and social change.
