Editorial Reviews


''For the most part, development organizations are gendered institutions built on patriarchal power and privilege, which unfortunately are often assumed to be gender neutral... Today, there is a sense that feminism is passé, that women are not oppressed, and that if there are inequalities, they are part of "culture"... Tiessen has very ably demonstrated that for development initiatives to succeed, gender must be front and centre.”

"A path-breaking study of gender mainstreaming in development agencies. Tiessen moves beyond interrogating gender mainstream theory, to ask the question -- how can it be achieved? Her in-depth analysis of Malawian and Canadian NGOs highlights the profound challenges facing those who seek to promote gender equality, both for and within development organizations. Tiessen reminds us that gender mainstreaming is not just a goal, it is also a process, requiring careful empirical research. Until this warning is taken seriously, gender mainstreaming will indeed remain an empty phrase."

"This is a fine-grained description of the experience of NGO staff attempting to change gender relations inside organizations and in the field. Tiessen builds on a decade of research on gender mainstreaming practice and it shows in the quality and texture of her descriptions. She has also done a good job of assembling research findings from other relevant studies that shed light on the problem. But, her unique contribution is to highlight the experience of actually implementing gender mainstreaming day-to-day and how working on gendered organizational dynamics is central to success of gender mainstreaming efforts."
