Women and World Development: An Annotated Bibliography.
Buvinic, Mayra; And Others
This annotated bibliography focuses on the effects of socioeconomic development and cultural change on women and on women's reactions to these changes. It is an expanded version of one which was prepared for the American Association of Science Seminar on Women in Development held in Mexico City in June 1975. The objectives were to disseminate this information more widely and to provide an overall view of the present status of research in the field. The introduction that precedes the bibliographic material summarizes some of the areas in which research is being done and suggests directions for further study. The 381 entries in the bibliography are divided into nine subject categories including general studies on women in development, the impact of society on women's roles and status, women's behavior patterns and customs, socioeconomic participation of rural women, education, work and economic development, health and family planning, women's informal and formal associations, and women, law, and politics. Each category is subdivided geographically. Information includes author, title, publisher, date, and abstract of the contents. Annexes list other bibliographies and annotate special issues of journals and periodicals devoted to women and development. (CK)
