In this compelling collection, women discuss the development processes which affect them, and attempt to show why development policy must respond to cultural difference. The contributors present different perspectives on crucial gender and development debates, such as female genital mutilation, global capitalism and women's labor, and resistance to education and development policies by women at the grass-roots level. The essays paint a vivid picture of development in practice, and the women described have found new possibilities for sustainable personal and community development within the cultures they inhabit.
