Has feminism transformed development studies? What happens to feminist theory and practice within the development industry? This book brings together a variety of feminist activists and academics, from both North and South, all engaged in development, to answer these questions. Including feminist projects from the "South in the North," the book explores how "global feminism" actually works in a variety of ways, through both activism and academic research.
