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

" We need to broaden our horizons and begin to ask those awkward questions about what sexuality looks like for the majority of women especially under contemporary global economic conditions, how heternormativity has developed and today is lived on a day-to-day basis, what makes sexuality pleasurable, what makes it oppressive and exploitative, and how it is linked to gender and other axes of power. "
Power, Labour, Pleasure: Sexuality in Everyday Life, Kamala Kempadoo
