Reversed realities : gender hierarchies in development thought by Naila Kabeer ( Book )
17 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 441 libraries worldwide
"Reversed Realities uncovers the deeply entrenched, hence barely visible, biases which underpin mainstream development theory and account for the marginal status given to women's needs in current development policy. Naila Kabeer traces the emergence of 'women' as a specific category in development thought and examines alternative frameworks for analysing gender hierarchies. She identifies the household as a primary site for the construction of power relations and compares the extent to which gender inequalities are revealed in different approaches to the concept of the family unit. The book assesses the inadequacies of the poverty line as a measuring tool and provides a critical overview of an issue that has been fiercely contested by feminists: population control. While feminists themselves have no unanimous view of the meaning of 'reproductive choice', Kabeer argues that it is imperative for them to take a lead in the construction of population policy." -- Back cover.
Gender mainstreaming in poverty eradication and the millennium development goals a handbook for policy-makers and other stakeholders by Naila Kabeer ( Book )
18 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 390 libraries worldwide
"In this book, Naila Kabeer brings together a set of arguments, findings and lessons from the development literature which help to explain why gender equality merits specific attention from policy-makers, practitioners, researchers and other stakeholders committed to the pursuit of pro-poor and human-centred development." "Neglect of gender inequalities in the distribution of resources, responsibilities and power in the processes of economic accumulation and social reproduction has a high cost, not only for women themselves but also for their children and other dependents and for the development of society as a whole. This book highlights the interconnections between production and reproduction within different societies, and women's critical role in straddling both, and points to the various synergies, trade-offs and externalities which these generate."--BOOK JACKET.

Inclusive citizenship : meanings and expressions ( Book )
7 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 268 libraries worldwide
"Inclusive Citizenship seeks to go beyond the intellectual debates of recent years on democratization and participation to explore a related set of issues around changing conceptions of citizenship. People's understandings of what it means to be a citizen go to the heart of the various meanings of identity, including national identity; political and electoral participation; and rights. The researchers in this volume come from a wide variety of societies, including the industrial countries in the North, and they seek to explore these difficult questions from various angles."--BOOK JACKET.
The power to choose : Bangladeshi women and labour market decisions in London and Dhaka by Naila Kabeer ( Book )
5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 255 libraries worldwide
"Naila Kebeer examines the lives of Bangladeshi garment workers to shed light on the question of what constitutes 'fair' competition in international trade. While Bangladesh is generally considered a poor, conservative Muslim country, with a long tradition of female seclusion, women here have entered factories to take their place as a prominent, first-generation, industrial labour force. In Britain, on the other hand, a supposedly modern and secular society with a long tradition of female employment, Bangladeshi women are largely concentrated in home-based piecework for the garment industry."--BOOK JACKET.

Mainstreaming gender in social protection for the informal economy by Naila Kabeer ( Book )
5 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 185 libraries worldwide
"The book will enhance understanding of the constraints and barriers that confine women to more poorly remunerated, more casual and more insecure forms of waged and self-employment, and of what this implies for women's ability to provide for their families and cope with insecurity. Kabeer develops a framework of analysis that integrates gender, life course and livelihoods perspectives in order to explore the interactions between gender inequality, household poverty and labour market forces that help to produce gender-differentiated experiences of risk and vulnerability for the working poor. She then examines and assesses examples of social protection measures in order to illustrate the necessity for a gender-analytical approach. She also stresses the importance of an organised voice for vulnerable and marginalised workers."--Jacket.

Intégration de la dimension genre à la lutte contre la pauvreté et objectifs du Millénaire pour le développement manuel à l'intention des instances de décision et d'intervention by Naila Kabeer ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in French and held by 132 libraries worldwide
"In this book, Naila Kabeer brings together a set of arguments, findings and lesons from the development literature which help to explain why gender equality merits specific attention from policy-makers, practitioners, researchers and other stakeholders committed to the pursuit of pro-poor and human-centred ddevelopment. ... All over the world, women from poor households play a more critical role in the income-earning and expenditure-saving activities of their households than women from better-off households, and are concentrated in the informal economy. The relationship between household poverty and women's paid activity has, if anything, become stronger over the past decades, partly in response to economic crisis and the "push" into the labour market and partly in response to new opportunities generated by globalisation. Improving women's access to economic opportunities, and enhancing returns to their efforts, will be to the goal of poverty eradication and the achievement of the Millenium Development Goals"--Cover.

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 46 libraries worldwide
Ensuring women's economic empowerment and access to and control over resources requires an integrated approach to growth and development, focused on gender-responsive employment promotion and informed by the interdependency between economic and social development. Social objectives need to be incorporated into economic policies. Economic growth strategies should give attention to the real economy and focus on creating a gender-sensitive macroeconomic environment, full employment and decent work, access to land, property and other productive resources as well as financial services, and full coverage of social protection measures. The survey outlines a number of concrete recommendations in these critical areas, which if adopted, will facilitate women's equitable access to and control over economic and financial resources.--Publisher's description.
