"Globalization and the failure of development have led to the feminization of poverty, environmental degradation and an uncertain future for global peace and security. Development studies has reached an impasse, both in its theoretical paradigms and its practical prescriptions. Too economistics, too little focused on the daily lives of women, and devoid of vision, the field needs a radical imaginative overhaul. The contributors to this book who work at the intersection of cultural studies, feminist studies and critical development studies, articultae a new theoretical framework that they call Women, Culture and Development. They apply it to a range of issues and through a series of shorter think pieces, present their ideas to the future." Contents "Acknowledgemets Notes on Contributors Abbreviations 1.
