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

" I was going to die, sooner or later, whether or not I had even spoken myself. My silences had not protected me. Your silences will not protect you.... What are the words you do not yet have? What are the tyrannies you swallow day by day and attempt to make your own, until you will sicken and die of them, still in silence? We have been socialized to respect fear more than our own need for language."
Audre Lorde
