Gender mainstreaming in poverty eradication and the millennium development goals a handbook for policy-makers and other stakeholders by Naila Kabeer ( )
24 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,231 WorldCat member 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
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 ( )
9 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in French and English and held by 787 WorldCat member 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

Global perspectives on gender equality : reversing the gaze ( Book )
13 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Nordic countries have long been seen as pioneers in promoting gender equality. This book brings together scholars from the global South and post-socialist economies to reflect on Nordic approaches to gender equality. The contributors to the book seek to explore from a comparative perspective the vision, values, policies, mechanisms, coalitions of interests and political processes that help to explain Nordic achievements on gender equality. While some contributors explore the Nordic experience through the prism of their own realities, others explore their own realities through the Nordic prism. By cutting across normal geographical boundaries, disciplinary boundaries and the boundaries between theory and policy, this book will be of interest to all readers with an interest in furthering gender equality
Inclusive citizenship : meanings and expressions ( Book )
12 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Spanish and held by 302 WorldCat member 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 )
6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member 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 )
6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member 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
Organizing women workers in the informal economy : beyond the weapons of the weak by Naila Kabeer ( Book )
7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Organizing Women Workers in the Informal Economy explores the emergence of an alternative repertoire among women working in the growing informal sectors of the global South: the weapons of organization and mobilization. This crucial book offers vibrant accounts of how women working on farms, as sex workers, maids, and waste pickers, in fisheries and factories, have come together to carve out new identities for themselves, define what matters to them, and develop collective strategies of resistence and struggle. -- Book Jacket

Triple roles, gender roles, social relations : the political subtext of gender training by Naila Kabeer ( Book )
5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Extrait de la page de titre : "The study of pasr polica failures to take account of women's needs and interests has generated a body of knowledge from which to shape better practice in the future. One means by which these lessons are disseminated is gender training and these has been a proliferation of methodologies by which this is being carried out. Most current efforts at gender training share a common objective in challenging biases in the planning process by alerting planners to gender divisions in resources and responsabilities. However, they vary in terms of their worldviews and their visions of gender equity. This paper examines three different training frameworks based on gender roles, women's triple roles and the social relations of gender in order to draw out how differences in their implicit worldviews affect their treatement of efficiency and equity issues. the paper concludes by arguing for training frameworks that move beyond static notions of effciency that encourage critical self-examination by planners of their own institutional practices ; and that incorporate a transformative politics which is premised on women's self-empowerment."
Women's control over economic resources and access to financial resources, including microfinance : 2009 world survey on the role of women in development by United Nations ( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member 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
