This collection of articles critically assesses the degree to which gender inequality has been addressed in the work of development organisations. Contributors scrutinise the efforts of governments and NGOs, at the national and international levels, in order to assess the difference that gender mainstreaming has made to advancing women’s interests in development. In addition, they consider the progress that development organisations have made in ensuring women’s fullest participation at all levels of their own organisations.
