Women and Development in Africa: How Gender Works
Extrait de l'introduction : "This book offers an introduction to the analysis of gender in the economies of sub-saharian Africa. Gender refers to the constellation of rules and identities that prescribe and proscribe behavior for persons, in their social roles as men and women. These rules and identities may be deliberate or unintended, explicit or implicit, conscious or unconscious. All societies of the world are gendered. The focus here will be on Africa south of the Sahara Desert. [...] Exploring gender issues is an opportunity to master analytical and empirical tools used in the social sciences. [...] The approach adopted in this book emphasizes the interactions between the choices that individuals make and the social environment that structures those choices."
