Though development researchers have proven that the participation of women is necessary for effective sustainable development, development practitioners still largely lack culturally appropriate, gender-sensitive tools for including women, especially women living in poverty. Current tools used in the development approach often favour the skill set of the development practitioner and are a mismatch with the traditional, gendered knowledge and skills many women who are living in poverty do have. This study explores three case studies from India, Ethiopia, and the Guatemala that have successfully used applied theatre for women's participation in sustainable development.

This interdisciplinary book has the opportunity to be the first to bring together the theory, scholarship and practice of theatre for women's participation in sustainable development in an international context. This work will be of great interest to scholars and practitioners in a wide variety of fields who are looking for creative solutions for utilizing the contributions of women for solving our global goals to live in a sustainable way on this one planet in a just and equitable manner.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"...the author is well informed about developmental discourses and challenges through her own long-term involvement in clean energy programmes. She has presented her work not only or not even primarily to theatre scholars, but also at conferences on development and technology and sustainable energy, where she established contacts with some of the organisations she visited, offered workshops to and spent time studying. This knowledge of the problems and debates around energy, women's health, or mother-child-care programmes based on her experiences in three continents, lends the study a certain rigour in the presentation of the issues." - Elisabeth Tropper, Theatre Research
