Economic Development and Women in the World Community

Framsida

After reviewing theories about how women are likely to fare as a result of economic development, the editors and their contributors focus on the socioeconomic status of women and changes in it as a result of processes of economic development in individual countries in five continents. Economic development is supposed to remove impediments to the improvement in women's status.

The editors call for a greater involvement of women as active participants in the process of dismantling social, legal, and institutional barriers to women's development.
