Women in developing economies: making visible the invisible edited by Joycelin Massiah 1993 300pp ISBN 0 85496 346 4 (BERG) ISBN 92 3 1028072 (UNESCO) Berg Publishing Inc. 150 Cowley Road, Oxford OX4 1JJ UK or UNESCO, 7 Place de Fontenoy
Even after twenty years of debate about the invisible work of women, very little has been done to collect information, to analyse women's contribution to national economies, or to give women adequate financial support or training. Women's productivity remains, therefore, at a low level. Women in developing economies is a selection of studies and articles aimed at sensitizing planners and decision-makers to the invisible socio-economic and cultural contribution of women in developing countries. The authors address such questions as how to make the contribution of women visible and more productive; how to better utilize women's resources even though they are often illiterate; how to build on traditional wisdom in order to modernize, how to reduce poverty and prevent women from being excluded from the more lucrative activities of the informal sector.
