Quel genre ? Résistances et mésententes autour du mot « genre » dans le développement


  • Christine Verschuur


Gender doesn’t always appear to be a useful category of analysis in development studies, in spite of its existence since about 40 years in social sciences. Both the complexity of feminist thinking and women’s heterogeneity were unrecognized for a long time in development studies. Thanks to the contributions of feminist postcolonial studies, gender, as a category of analysis, intertwined with class and race categories, contributes to renew the thinking in development studies.
