Struggling with Development: The Politics of Hunger and Gender in the Philippines

Synopsis

Struggling with Development is a study of the complex relationships among international development, hunger, & gender in the context of political violence in the Philippines. This ethnography demonstrates that gender-specific international development, which has among its main goals the alleviation of hunger in women & children & the raising of women's social position, has instead perpetuated the problems of hunger & gender inequality in societies. Lynn Kwiatkowski questions the international "women in development" thrust of some feminist & development scholarship & organizations, arguing for a critical reevaluation of the hegemonic Western international development project.
