Gender Justice, Development, and Rights

Volume edited by Maxine Molyneux and Shahra Razavi.

Description: This important study engages with some of the most pressing and contested of contemporary issues – neo-liberal policies, democracy and multiculturalism - analyzing them from a gender perspective. It examines political and policy processes, the way in which liberal rights and ideas of democracy and justice have been absorbed into the political agendas of women's movements.
