'This novel and exhilarating book provides a much-needed bridge between the theory of development and its practice. Lively, trenchant, often eloquent, the essays show women confronting urgent issues of gender justice in ways that bring theoretical perspectives to bear on practice, and also show how good theory is illuminated by actual engagements. The authors write about development problems in an impressive array of countries: China, India, Bangladesh; Ghana and South Africa; Israel and Palestine; Senegal, Nigeria, France; Australia and Mauritius. The questions confronted range widely, including the role of the World Bank in promoting gender equity, the role of women's issues in higher education, the relationship between gender justice and traditional religion or ideologies, and the role of the literary imagination in creating women's futures. This is essential reading for anyone interested in development, feminism and, more generally, in the power of the human imagination' - Martha Nussbaum, Ernst Freund Distinguished Service Professor of Law and Ethics, The University of Chicago 'Not just another academic tome on development, this book bristles with life--the lived stories of development across the globe. As an activist, I especially appreciated its attention to the details and differences of practice in various local cultures. The women writing for and written about in these pages speak in an invigorating range of voices. They are development feminists: an international, interdisciplinary community of women working from the grassroots level on up to produce sustainable development solutions to the problems we face today' - Beulah Moonsingh, Executive Director Agromart Foundation, Sri Lanka
