Lahiri-Dutt, Kuntala; Samanta, Gopa
Community Development Journal, v37 n2 p137-56 Apr 2002
Discussions with women in rural areas of India analyzed government-initiated development programs regarding availability of information, suitability to women's needs, and perception of problems. Most programs were top down with little input form women; self-help approaches problematized the "self" and did not consider the realities of women's lives or desired identities.
