As a fundamental cross-cutting theme in development theory and practice today, gender perspectives and practices have moved significantly from the political and economic empowerment strategies of feminist activism in the 1970s. What began as a concern with women's ongoing discrimination and disadvantage and the lack of visibility of women and their particular needs from development became a broader concern with the nature of relations between men and women. The subject will review shifts in gender theories and practices since the 1950s with a focus on contemporary actions and approaches, feminist critiques, and the embedding of gender in practices of development agencies, international organisations, non-government organisations and state level actors. Drawing on scholarship in development studies, sociology and anthropology, the subject will make use of case studies in the developing world in its examination of key concepts and tools such as ‘gendered division of labour,’ ‘gender sensitiveness,’ ‘gender mainstreaming,’ and ‘gender analysis.’
