Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The books outlines and uses a comprehensive construct within which development interventions designed to improve women's equity must operate and must address to truly result in greater equity for women throughout the world. The books makes it very clear that an intervention at one level in one domain is insufficient to create desired outcomes. A systems approach is needed so that each intervention has as broad a swathe and as great a coordination required to produce sustainable change. For the development practitioner, the book sets out a blueprint for project/program design that points to the various entry points development focused on gender equity must follow. If I have any criticism it is based in the disciplinary focus of the book - culture is mentioned and at times discussed, but lies at the basis for all interventions as without a changing of the mind changing behaviors is more challenging.
