Assuming that women’s empowerment would accelerate the pace of social change in rural Nepal the World Bank urged the Nepali government to undertake a Gender Activities Project within an ongoing long-term water-engineering scheme. The author an anthropologist specializing in bureaucratic organizations and gender studies was hired to monitor the project. Analyzing her own experience as a practicing development expert she shows how the project intended to benefit women through teaching them literary and agricultural skills fails to provide them with any of the promised resources. Going beyond the conventional analysis that positions aid givers vis-à-vis powerless victimized recipients she draws attention to the complexity of the process and the active role played by the Nepalese rural women who pursue their own interests and aspirations within this unequal world. It will appeal to practicing development experts policy-makers researchers and graduate students of development studies gender studies social anthropology and social work. Anybody interested in women’s education and empowerment in South Asia will find this useful.Printed Pages: 278.
