Development As If Women Mattered: An Annotated Bibliography with a Third World Focus. Occasional Paper No. 10.
This bibliography, one major project of the New TransCentury Foundation's Secretariat for Women in Development, presents annotations of documents describing and analyzing the situation of women in the third world. The objective is to gather and make available papers on women and development having an action/programming orientation, papers prepared by and presenting the perspectives of third world women, and fugitive documents to be made available at the TransCentury Foundation. The document is presented in two parts. An overview explains the purpose and coverage of the bibliography and focuses on findings and recommendations concerning women in development. The 287 entries are presented in ten broad topical sections which are subdivided geographically. These sections cover general material; women in their culture and society; socioeconomic participation; women and migration; formal and informal associations; education; rural development; health, nutrition, fertility, and family planning; communications; and impact of development and modernization. Each entry lists author, title, journal or publisher, date, and number of pages, as well as an abstract of the contents. An annex lists 27 bibliographies on women and development. (CK)
