9780855984533: Gender, Development, and Money (Oxfam Focus on Gender Series)

The belief that "money is power" has informed much gender and development policy and practice. Commitment to women's economic empowerment has, for the most part, been "demonstrated" through a seemingly endless series of income-generating projects and credit schemes targeted at women. In this collection of articles, contributors from South and North ask: just what role does earning income play in transforming the power relations between women and men? How far does a change in the roles of women and men affect beliefs about who has the power in the household, the marketplace, or the state? And how can we value the unpaid work that most women perform in the home and family context?

About the Author:

Caroline Sweetman is Editor of the international journal Gender and Development.

Review:

This is a highly thought-provoking collection of articles, which together challenge simplistic views relating to the links between women, money and empowerment. By drawing out the highly complex relationships and presenting conflicting evidence, readers are left to draw their own conclusions. In this sense, it is a valuable contribution to the literature and is recommended to all those who are interested in women's income-generating activities and empowerment issues inclusing development practitioners, donor agencies and academics. Small Enterprise Development Journal, June 2003
