Why Study Gender and Development?



Gender and Development Studies investigates material and ideological relations of gender. It is particularly concerned with the institutionalised gender inequalities and seeks to expose and transform these inequalities to create a more just society.

Students pursuing undergraduate, diploma and graduate studies in Gender and Development can provide important insight and analysis in various occupational fields, including media and communications, non-profit work, State policy and planning and grassroots organising.

Quotes

" By denying or refusing the myriad unscripted ways in which people chance upon, live and love each other, different categories of belonging are created, rendering some families less normal or less valued. This is similar, by the way, to how we tend to think of households headed by women as secondary to the nuclear/male breadwinner family, despite the fact that they represent the family experience of over forty percent of children in the region, or the laws that outlaw lesbian and gay sex and make criminals and non-citizens out of all of us whose desires refuse to be strai(gh)tjacketed. "
