Gender & Development translates activism and analysis both ways, between practice and policy and academic research and back the other way, helping to get development programmes and policies relevant, helpful and transformational for poor women

About Gender & Development

About the journal

Since 1993, Gender & Development has promoted and supported dignified, decent and sustainable development founded on equality between women and men. The journal currently has a readership in over 90 countries, and has become essential reading for development practitioners, policy-makers and academics. Each issue focuses on a cutting-edge theme. 

Gender & Development aims to debate best practice and new ideas, and to make the links between theoretical and practical gender and development work.
