Rai, Professor in the Department of Politics and International Studies, University of Warwick “This volume is a must-read for anyone interested in understanding gender and development through a critical lens. This collection brings us closer to truly imagining a feminist future.” - Amy Lind, Mary Ellen Heintz, Professor of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies University of Cincinnati About the book The Handbook features feminist scholars and activists of different generations who have critically influenced feminist analyses, strategies and visions in gender and development discourse.
