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

" The challenge of the twenty-first century is to demystify these political and ideological relations and expose them for what they really are--that is, strategies of accumulation of capital by any means necessary. This should be the real work of civil society organizations, that of contesting power of transnational capital and engendering democracy at all levels, not just articulating empty platitudes about a generalized empowerment. "
