Developing power : how women transformed international development( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In every nation around the world, women have long occupied the pivotal place in social and economic life on its most basic and meaningful levels. Yet the international development programs that grew in the mid-twentieth century largely ignored or bypassed women's ideas, women's rights, women's work, and the realities of women's lives. More often than not, these development projects served to reinforce patriarchal structures rather than to support or empower women. In Developing Power, women from around the world tell how they fought to ensure that the unprecedented political and economic changes in the developing world would benefit women as well as men. Organizing, often against crippling odds, to demand their place at the table, they helped to create one of the most important social movements of the last century--the global women's movement. This movement saw a rare collaboration between women from the global North and the global South, as they worked together to alter the established order both inside the UN and in NGOs, national and local governments, universities, think tanks, and on-the-ground development projects. In these compelling testimonies, a distinguished group of 27 pioneering women from 12 countries tell their own stories, revealing the moments when they realized that they could challenge the received wisdom of the day, and the struggles involved in turning their ideas into actions. These varied accounts come from women involved in creating the four major UN conferences on women held from 1975 to 1995, women scholars, women in institutions that provide development funds, and women in development agencies. While a good deal of work remains to be done before women achieve full equity in international development, the changes achieved in the past 30 years are enormous. The stories in Developing Power reach beyond their individual contexts to provide a model for progressive social change. At this crucial historical moment, when women in Afghanistan and Iraq are being excluded from "rebuilding" plans in the wake of U.S. wars abroad, Developing Power offers both instruction and inspiration."--Publisher's description

Third World women speak out : interviews in six countries on change, development, and basic needs by Perdita Huston( Book )

3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Third World women speak out, a collaborative venture of the Agency for International Development Office of Women in Development, the International Center for Research on Women, and the Overseas Development Council, is part of a continuing effort by these agencies to prepare and publish materials illustrating women's roles and status in the developing world. Its focus is on women at the grassroots and their direct expression of their own ideas on change, development, and basic needs. It is based on materials gathered by Perdita Huston in six developing countries, in the course of a study of women's views on family planning, published by the Epoch B Foundation in 1978 as Message from the Village. In this book Huston expands the scope of her reporting to cover women's perspectives on a wider range of development issues. While the interviews are unstructured in format and therefore highly personal, the book also contains a content analysis of the tapes, conducted by social scientists at the ICRW, which complements Huston's journalistic presentation. -- Review from http://www.jstor.org (Sep. 15, 2016)
