Economic Development and Women in the World Community, Paperback / softback Book

Economic Development and Women in the World Community Paperback / softback



After reviewing theories about how women are likely to fare as a result of economic development, the editors and their contributors focus on the socioeconomic status of women and changes in it as a result of processes of economic development in individual countries in five continents.

Economic development is supposed to remove impediments to the improvement in women's status.

In some developing countries researchers have found that instead of lessening the forces of restrictions, economic development may, in fact, have strengthened them.

The editors call for a greater involvement of women as active participants in the process of dismantling social, legal, and institutional barriers to women's development.
