Reading: Gender Equality and Sustainable Development

by on May 16, 2016

Gender Equality and Sustainable Development
Leach, Melissa. New York: Routledge, 2016.

Leach is one of thirteen contributors who address why sustainable development and enhancing gender equality are important and why they must be addressed together. The authors call for policies, investments, and initiatives that recognize the rights and capabilities of women and their involvement in these processes as fundamental. This book demonstrates how plural pathways, underpinned by different narratives, are possible and how the choices between are ultimately political.
