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

" Homosexuality is so unsettling to masculinity, that it results in attempts to try to deny its existence, to remove it from society through force, that is to say, to beat up individuals who are gay or believed to be gay, or to ridicule, publicly harass or otherwise ostracize people of different sexual orientation."
Unsettling Masculinity in the Caribbean- Facing a Future without Guarantees, Linden Lewis
