Missing links : gender equity in science and technology for development by United Nations Commission on Science and Technology for Development( )

12 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 1,581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book consists largely of essays exploring the issues relating to science, technology, and gender, with examples provided that illustrate the differential effects of technology on men and women. The topics chosen for the essays reflect an early decision to focus primarily on the basic needs of people in rural areas of the developing world. Seven key issues are identified: gender equity in science and technology education; removing obstacles to women in scientific and technological careers; making science responsive to societal needs; making science and technology decision-making more gender-aware; relating better with local knowledge systems; addressing ethical issues; and improving collection of gender-disaggregated data for policymakers. Essay topics include food security, energy development, health, technology assessment, education, literacy, measurement of technology impacts, women in small business, and the gender dimension of information as a transformative tool

Progress of the world's women : UNIFEM biennial report by Diane Elson( )

in English and Undetermined and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This inaugural report, Progress of the World's Women 2000, assesses what has been achieved for women's economic empowerment and gender equality from the mid 1980s to the late 1990s. Launched at the UN Special Sessions to review progress in implementing commitments made at the Fourth World Conference on Women and the World Summit on Social Development, it focuses on the economic dimensions of women's progress in the context of globalization. Using a combination of statistical indicators and personal testimonies, it shows that while there has been progress in many countries, this progress is uneven. Even in the richest countries some forms of gender inequality persist. There is still a long way to go before the promise of the Beijing Platform for Action is fulfilled. This raises the need for greater accountability, calling for more concentrated attention to three areas: targets and indicators that are needed to track progress, individuals and institutions who need to be held accountable, and the measures that need to be taken towards accelerating progress for women

Progress of the world's women 2005 : women, work, & poverty by Martha Alter Chen( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Makes the case for an increased focus on women's informal employment as a key pathway to reducing poverty and strengthening women's economic security. It provides the latest available data on the size and composition of the informal economy and compares national data on average earnings and poverty risk across different segments of the informal and formal workforces in six developing countries and one developed country to show the links between employment, gender and poverty. It looks at the costs and benefits of informal work and their consequences for women's economic security. Finally, it provides a strategic framework — with good practice examples — for how to promote decent work for women informal workers, and shows why strong organizations of workers in the informal economy are vital to effective policy reforms. -- Publisher description

Speaking out : women's economic empowerment in South Asia by Marilyn Carr( Book )

5 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Extrait de la couverture . "This volume draws together the experiences of seven south Asia NGOs in organizing rural and urban poor women for economic empowerment. going beyond the normal descriptive accounts of the work of these NGOs, it throws new light on how changes are occuring at the grassroots level and analyses and defines economic empowerment from the perspective of women themselves. Through case studies, the book demonstrates how women are gaining increased access to and control economic resources and how this, in turn, has lead to far-reaching socio-cultural and political changes at the individual, family, community and wider economiy levels. It also shows how women are now building and taking control of their own organizations which are becoming increasingly more autonomous and financially self-reliant. This book will be of relevance to students of development and womn's studies, development planners and practitioners, women's organizations and those with an interest in South Asia
Connecting across cultures and continents : black women speak out on identity, race, and development by United Nations Development Fund for Women( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dialogues in this book present a cross-cultural, multidisciplinary critique of racism and the advocacy required to confront its persistence globally. While the essays begin to refocus attention on racism as a challenge to international development, they also call on the international women's movement to support Black women's efforts to realize their own humanity. The authors provide an analysis and a metaphor for Black women across the globe, who are working to transcend their alienation, to validate their own heritage and to escape the tyranny of racial discrimination.The authors provide an analysis and a metaphor for Black women across the globe, who are working to transcend their alienation, to validate their own heritage and to escape the tyranny of racial discrimination.
