Gender and Development: The Economic Basis of Women′s Power
Drawing from the leading scholarship in the field, Gender and Development: The Economic Basis of Women′s Power helps you to develop a foundational understanding of the significant role that gender plays in developing societies. Award-winning scholars Samuel Cohn and Rae Lesser Blumberg have carefully selected and edited a collection of readings that encourage you to think critically about the economic power (or lack thereof) of women, and apply key concepts and theory related to gender and current development issues. From women’s participation in labor markets to their financial autonomy and purchasing power, these readings enable you to explore the economic implications of female power and the importance of women’s strategic indispensability.
