Women and Development in the Third World (Routledge Introductions to Development)

Janet Henshall Momsen


For all societies, the common denominator of gender is female subordination. For women of the Third World, the effects of this position are exacerbated by the legacy of colonialism, economic crisis, and patriarchal attitudes. In this book, Janet Momsen presents ten worldwide case studies which act as personalized examples of women's lives and coping strategies in the Third World. Her review of policy and practice raises questions about development planning and the empowerment of women.
