Gender Myths and Feminist Fables: The Struggle for Interpretive Power in Gender and Development
Author:

Andrea Cornwall, Elizabeth Harrison, Ann Whitehead

Title:

Gender Myths and Feminist Fables: The Struggle for Interpretive Power in Gender and Development

ISBN:

1405169370

Over the last 30 years, &#8216;gender&#8217; has gained both official status within development institutions and become a recognised field of research and scholarly enquiry. This book explores how bowdlerised and impoverished representations of gender relations have simultaneously come to be embedded in development policy and practice. &#8216;Gender myths&#8217; and &#8216;feminist fables&#8217; abound: women are more likely to care for the environment; are better at working together; are less corrupt; have a seemingly infinite capacity to survive. In tracing the ways in which language and images of development are related to practice, the papers in this collection provide a nuanced account of the politics of knowledge production. They also interrogate the implications for feminist engagement with development, arguing that struggles for interpretive power are not only important for their own sake, but also for the implications they have for women&#8217;s lives worldwide.
