Introduction: Gendering development, developing gender: The politics of contemporary gendered analysis of development

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review

Abstract

From this perspective, analysis of gendered division of labor in specific societies - for example, women who work as trash collectors in Senegal, or women's role as primary domestic water providers in many rural dryland regions in the world - is explored as part of a larger analysis of the formation of social difference, of ongoing struggles over power and of the meaning of cultural norms that uphold social order. Exploring the politics of garbage in Senegal's capital city, Rosalind Fredericks traces the politics of trash in Senegal's neoliberal era by examining the dynamic gendered geographies of garbage on household, neighborhood and city scales.meaning attempts to improve rural water supplies are less than successful because of failure by implementing agencies to take into account gender roles and responsibilities with regard to water management and use.
