Overview

In these compelling testimonies, a distinguished group of 27 pioneering women from 12 countries tell how they fought to ensure that the unprecedented political and economic changes in the developing world would benefit women as well as men. At this crucial historical moment, when women in Afghanistan and Iraq are being excluded from “rebuilding” plans in the wake of U.S. wars abroad, Developing Power offers both instruction and inspiration.

Arvonne S. Fraser has been coordinator of the Office of Women in Development at the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and is currently senior fellow emerita of the Hubert H. Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs. Irene Tinker was a founder of the Wellesley Center for Research on Women, the International Center for Research on Women, and the Equity Policy Center.
