Institutions, Relations, and Outcomes: A Framework and Case Studies for Gender-aware Planning
Naila Kabeer, Ramya Subrahmanian
Kali for Women, Jan 1, 1999 - Social Science - 410 pages
The absence of gender awareness in policy and planning in the past has given rise to a variety of efficiency, welfare and equity costs. This book develops an analytical framework and a set of tools which can assist planners, as well as trainers, to ensure that gender is systematically integrated into different aspects of their work. It offers an inventory of the kinds of assumptions which lead to gender-blind policy, and assesses integrationist and transformatory strategies by feminist advocates to influence the mainstream policy agenda. An analytical framework for examining the gender inequalities generated by key institutions through which development takes place occupies a cebtral place in the book. A selection of case studies from the Indian context serves to illustrate the different aspects of the framework and its applications.
