Women's Leadership and Participation: Case studies on learning for action

Authors: Hoare, J. & Gell, F. (eds.)
Publication date: 2009

This book brings together lessons and experience in building up women's involvement from Oxfam GB and its partners. Women's Leadership and Participation illustrates methodological approaches and learning points, covering a range of issues, from women's participation in national elections to female decision-making in community livelihood initiatives.

It asks the questions: what are the structural barriers to women's leadership and participation? How can women be encouraged to take up leadership positions? Once they are leading, how can women (and men) be supported to carry out their roles effectively and for progressive purposes? Each chapter zooms in on a specific case study.
