Introduction: Gender, a Necessary Tool of Analysis for Social Change

Isabelle Guérin, Hélène Guétat-Bernard and Christine Verschuur

A chapter in Under Development: Gender, 2014, pp 1-13 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract Being compelled to constantly deconstruct and reconstruct generally used categories, feminist thought provides a major heuristic contribution. This book endeavours to show how the concept of gender2 allows us to revisit development studies and to convey that studying development is not possible without including gender.
