Women in development: a resource guide for organization and action
For too long now policy-makers and decision-makers attempting to consider women's needs where development plans and policies are concerned, have ignored a basic principle. They have failed to consult the organizations and groups that have been set up for and by the women themselves. In the past this has led to development which has at best neglected or at worst, been detrimental to women. Women's experiences of development, their struggles for rights, for the adequate supply of basic needs such as food, water, shelter, health and education, and their continued ability to mobilize and organize themselves successfully in order to execute change, must be recognized if any serious debate on the issues surrounding women and development is to take place. Women in development is a guide which offers some answers written by women, for women, in both developing and industrialized countries. It examines the insights that women themselves have brought to the debate, with specific attention to the following areas: multinationals, rural development; health; migration and tourism, education and communication.
