Gender and Cultural Change Overview Report
The Overview Report examines the connections between culture, gender and development and addresses key questions: What has gender and development got to do with culture? Is gender and development an interference in people’s cultures? How can these issues be tackled on a practical level? As a starting point, a closer look is taken at what we mean by culture. Global, national and local forces create the many conflicting ideas of what counts as 'local culture'. The 'culture' of the international development industry is created by structures of power and inequality. A call is made for people to identify and take action against oppressive practices, instead of standing back in respect of culture.
