This chapter addresses the debates about gender mainstreaming, organisational change, and the politics of influencing, to which the present book aims to contribute. That gender mainstreaming is political has long been accepted, but for this perception to be useful it needs to be transposed onto a much more strategically oriented understanding of feminist bureaucrats' activism.

Drawing on material from the book's case studies, theoretical arguments are developed about marginality, effectiveness, and strategy, in the context of the ebb and flow of gender mainstreaming within the international development system.
