  • Synopsis
    After more than a decade of practice gender training is no longer the preserve of the original advocates, the international women’s' movement: it is widely recognized by governments, international donors, non-governmental organizations and United Nations' bodies as an important tool for gender-aware transformation of institutions and societies. The wider acceptance of the need for such change has not, however, led to a common understanding as to its goals. Thus gender training programmes vary widely in their vision and purpose, understanding of gender and operational objectives. This book reviews experiences of gender training practitioners in a broad sense, including those involved in gender education and training as well as research. Contributors include gender advocates from different geographical regions (South Asia, the Middle East, Eastern and Southern Africa) and divergent fields.
