Gender permeates all development issues, and there is growing debate surrounding how best to implement and promote gender balance and equality throughout the development agenda.This episode broadly focuses on two different views of why we might be interested in women in development: the first based on instrumental reasons (what can women and girls do for development) and the second on more structural and contextual reasons (what development can do for women and girls).
Our guests are Andrea Cornwall of the Institute of Development Studies and Prue Clarke of New Narratives.
Development Drums is hosted by Owen Barder and produced by Anna Scott at the Center for Global Development in Europe.
