The economic and political empowerment of women continues to be a central focus for development agencies worldwide; access to medical care, education and employment, as well as women's reproductive rights, remain key factors affecting women's autonomy.

Feminisms, Empowerment and Development explores what women are doing to change their own personal circumstances, and it provides an in-depth analysis of collective action and institutionalised mechanisms aimed at changing structural relations. This is an indispensable text for anyone interested in gender and development.
