Women in Development: A Selected Annotated Bibliography and Resource Guide. Annotated Bibliography #1.
Vavrus, Linda Gire; Cadieux, Ron
This annotated bibliography on the subject of women in development is compiled from the resource collection of the Non-Formal Education Information Center of Michigan State University. Planned development efforts are beginning to reflect a greater appreciation of nontraditional, as well as traditional, role options for women. Moreover, constraints imposed by political, social, economic, and cultural traditions are being more realistically acknowledged as affecting the attitudes toward women's roles held by both men and women. The frustrating reality faced by many planners is that, despite costly programs designed to enhance the involvement of women in national development efforts, attitudes and values must be enlightened before there will be major changes in the global status and treatment of women. The materials listed in this bibliography were chosen because they represent efforts to treat realistically the myriad issues embedded in these topics dealing with women in development. The bibliography is organized according to the following classification scheme: (1) references dealing with the topical areas of general development, agriculture and food production, education, employment and work, family, nutrition, and health; (2) references dealing with the regional areas of Africa and the Middle East, Asia and the Pacific, and Latin America and the Caribbean; (3) journals and periodicals; (4) bibliographies; (5) international organizations and organizations from Africa and the Middle East, Asia and the Pacific, Europe and North America, and Latin America and the Caribbean; and (6) recent acquisitions.
