Questions related to Gender And Development
When I embarked on this journey of exploring more on exploring the condition and status of gender equity and equality in architecture, or public spaces, or urban design, I found very little literature is available. Would be great to discuss on this topic. I have started to get an impression perhaps this topic is irrelevant or not trending at all. But I have strong feeling that has an importance, but very little research has been done on this. Would be great if you know of some documents or share some light on this.
I looking for work that takes a predominantly developing /under(semi)developed, etc. perspective in discussing socio-economic issues in countries in the "periphery" of Europe (South, East, less developed regions, etc). That is work that uses concepts, ideas, theories, methodologies, etc typically associated with less developed countries to approach issues in the "periphery" of Europe. I'm interested in either contemporary of historical analyses.
Many African critics have written in support of the popularly held belief that most African societies are patriarchal in nature, and that women are yet to occupy their rightful position in the scheme of things. The question is, in what way (s) are African writers, particularly female writers responding to the issue of marginalization of the female subject in Africa?
I want to construct an index 'X' (like 'wealth-index'/'gender development index') with 3 hierarchical scores (low-medium-high) for Bangladesh. I have found a literature where they have initially included 8 factors which are generally considered as validate domains of 'X' in Bangladesh. Then, after EFA and CFA, they have excluded 3 factors and declared that the remaining 5 factors are the 'valid factors' of 'X'. I will use 'DHS' data, like they've used too.
Now, my question is,
"If I want to create an index of 'X' (and further logistic regression) for Bangladesh with low-medium-high scores, then with proper citation of that literature, can I use those 5 valid factors/variables directly in my study (without further CFA analysis)?"
Dear all, would anyone be aware of established journals dedicated to gender and development that are not ideologically committed to a west-centric feminist understanding of gender hierarchies? These tend to pressume western metaphysics of gender, and are not willing or able to engage with alternative understandings of gender from the ground. Thank you.
I am trying to find some theoretical evidence for the fact that on personal-self construal level western nations(egalitarian) are less stereotypical when it comes to gender roles, if compared to eastern nations , but i couldn’t . Can you please help me in this regard and recommend some reads.
I found : own gender beliefs is higher (vs. lower) in eastern (vs. western) countries when considering other-stereotyping and when social comparison is salient, but the reverse was found when considering self-reporting, that is self-stereotyping.
Creating binaries - "Menstruating Women" vs "Semening Men" :
The women have been enslaved by creating exemplary binaries. Women are defined between binaries, like – Mother vs Whore; Virgin vs Vamp.
Being a student of Sociology, I also believe in being an Activist.
They have created a phrase “Menstruating Women”, so I have created a phrase “Semening Men”.
Let us use this phrase “Semening Men” in our discourses, debates and discussions.
One example –
Throughout 2018, the two words that remained hot with “semening” men are – “Cow” and “Menstruation”.
Is this the final mental limits of which “semening” men are capable of?
Please let me know your thoughts.
I am looking for resources that can assist me in developing a course module on sociology of development for a bachelors program. It will be great if you can share with me book chapters, articles on theories of development, gender and development, social development, economic development, sustainable development, globalization and development, indicators of development and international development. I will also appreciate any course module outlines that cover any of these topics to help me develop an interesting module for the program

If anyone could help with any of this that would be hugely appreciated!
Hi, everyone! I am working on a research exploring the idea that (Western) development donors are now using some global development agenda as a top-down measure in development toward local implementers (e.g. international organisations, NGOs, CBOs), while many implementers, on the contrary, create locality or 'local realities' back to those donors in their development practice. However, I am aiming to connect this two different worlds between 'the global' and 'the local' and incorporate them into a vernacular version of development agendas. In order to make it clearer, the gender mainstreaming might be a good example (as I talk about it in my research). It is used by donors in top-down characteristics, while local implementers incorporate it in their work and report back in bottom-up characteristics. However, in their reports, I believe, there are both the 'globalised' gender mainstreaming and the 'localised' one intermingled in the 'in-between space' of the global and the local. Those two worlds are no more separated but interconnected by this sense.
However, so far, I could not find much of pieces of literature on 'vernacularization', 'vernacularism' and 'vernacularity', particularly in development studies. Any thoughts? Any recommedations?
Thank you very much!
I am now working on my paper aiming to identify the way many development donors (e.g. DFID, USAID, etc.) utilise the gender mainstreaming (and/or green agenda) to generate their power and control over international organisations and local NGOs as aid recipients. Their conducts, including their performance focus, development practices, development paradigm, and their performance results in project reports, should be in accordance with donors' conditionalities. I initially interpret that they become a particular type of subject that donors would like to see and would like to engage in their relationship.
However, I am not sure if I could apply Foucault's 'Governmentality' and his 'Technologies of Power' to this work. If not, Is there any theories from any particular theorists suitable for this? Please give me some advice. Thank you very much!

Recent research has revealed that the practice of the female genital mutilation in countries like Ivory, Somali and Sudan is mostly the influenced by patriarchal dominance in these nations in Africa (Poggioli, French Activists Fight FGM,2009; Monagan,2010). For this reason, my project intend to investigate the roles men can play in the prevention of Female Genital Mutilation using their supremacy in the societies in Africa.

A core concept in sociology, political science, organizational behaviour and business, social capital is relatively new in the context of sport governance. In exploring the boundaries of both sport and social capital in theory and practice, one can see sport as a form of positive (bridging) social capital that promotes social cohesion, trust, social ties, etc. Could it also be perceived as a social space that promotes dark or exclusonary social capital since sport politics do not always deliver the social benefits they proclaim due to commercialization, doping, gender discrimination or institutionalized gender personification, the leaky pipeline and the glass ceiling in SGBs and in competitive sports.
I want to know the type of role women play in both the domestic as well as the private sphere and also how their domestic roles impact that of their private ones and vice versa.

Single identity leadership development and race or gender-based leadership programmes? Is there a need for these or have corporations moved beyond such challenges?
My paper with Ani Mitra and Arnab Biswas suggests that it does, on average, but that it may not have any impact in countries where women are worst-off, and in the worst cases media freedom may even worsen matters. In highly unequal societies, increasing educational attainment overall, along with other strategies to promote development and economic growth seem to matter more.
Our paper suggests that the access dimension may matter more for developing (non-OECD) countries, whereas to the extent that equity does boost growth for already developed (OECD) countries, it does so through participation (and not access).
Since the Beijing platform for action in 1995, there has been an increase in gender awareness in almost all sectors of development, with the water sector not an exception. Yet, there is still gender discrimination in terms of water use, access and control, especially in the rural areas. There have been numerous studies into the factors leading to that, yet it is still prevailing. So the question is, is the problem from the lower levels or with the water management institutions who are the implementers of water policies and strategies as well as gender mainstreaming policy in water sector. Moreover, it is evident that, since 1995, most water institutions have not yet done a review of their water gender policy, AMCOW asserted. What are some of the components that needs to be in an effective gender mainstreaming policy or strategy?
If a training program is to be organized for women ULB officials, what should be put up as training components.
Following the 74th Constitutional Amendment Act in India, it has been made mandatory to reserve 33 % of ULB positions for women. In quantity the demand has been fulfilled, but there is certain lack of qualitative input by these women officials. Hence as part of Capacity Development Program for ULB, a training program is to be organized. Women in India have been holding a relegated position in society, not much aware of the development issue. Some require extensive awareness and training/capacity building programs. Are there any suggestions for a groundwork for such a program?
