Harvesting Feminist Knowledge for Public Policy: Rebuilding Progress

Publisher: SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
Author: Devaki Jain
Type: Book
Date: 2011
Keywords: feminist, feminism, political, economic, social,
Location in CRTDA: Independent Resources and Information Services (IRIS)

This book brings together 14 essays by feminist thinkers from different parts of the world, reflecting on the flaws in the current patterns of development and arguing for political, economic, and social changes to promote equality and sustainability. The contributors argue that the very approach being taken to understand and measure progress, and plan for and evaluate development, needs rethinking in ways that draw on the experiences and knowledge of women. All the essays, in diverse ways, offer proposals for alternative ideas to address the limitations and contradictions of currently dominant theories and practices in development, and move towards the creation of a socially just and egalitarian world.
