What does the latest research tell us about gender and development? This book summarizes the research results and policy implications of 27 studies on the subject. The findings in this book are grounded in empirical, quantitative evidence, but they are presented in nontechnical language. The book is organized according to the following broad themes: (1) power and resources within the household; (2) agriculture and natural resources; (3) health and nutrition; (4) social capital, legal institutions, and propertyrights; and (5) the impact of policies and interventions. Each thematic section begins with an overview of the key messages for that theme and of the specific contribution each study makes in that area. Summaries of each study follow, with suggestions for further reading. The book will be useful to teachers, undergraduate and graduate students, practitioners working on gender and development, and general readers interested in the subject.
