Women and Development. Courier No. 29.
ASPBAE Courier Service, n29 Dec 1983
This issue contains materials, about and for women, which have been produced as part of the United Nations Decade for Women. Included are presentations made at the Asian-South Bureau of Adult Education Conferences and other congresses, conferences, and meetings held to discuss women in developing nations. The first three papers deal with the status and role of women in development; the impact of aid, development, and technological change on the status of women in developing nations; and the failure to take women seriously into account as part of the developmental process. Extracts follow from "Links for the Chain," a report of nonformal education involving women in South Asia. The next paper concerns women's unequal position in economic development. Country reports are provided on nonformal education for, and by, women in Australia; nonformal education for women in Malaysia; women's education in Japan; and aspects of women's lives in Thailand. The South Pacific Commission's monthly news of activities (March, 1983) precedes the final papers on a new international economic order that incorporates women into future developmental strategies.
