New Feminist Development Subsection

New Sociology of Development Subsection: Feminist Development

At the October Cornell conference, several Sociology of Development section members met over lunch and agreed to form a new subsection entitled Feminist Development.  This subsection is the successor to the former Gender Initiative interest group that has been inactive recently.

The group elected Kristy Kelly ( and Barbara Wejnert ( as the subsection co-chairs.

The purpose of the subsection is (1) to exchange information and resources on gender and development; and (2) to articulate and affirm collectively an intersectional feminist approach to development.

All members of the Sociology of Development section are warmly invited to join the subsection.  Please convey your interest to Kristy or Barbara who will add your name to the listserv.

Please visit the Feminist Development webpage, housed under the Subsections tab on the Sociology of Development website. We will be developing this page in the coming months and subsection members are welcome to contribute ideas and resources.

In addition to the co-chairs, founding members of the subsection include Rae Lesser Blumberg, Jennifer Keahey, Rebecca Kruger, Susan Lee, Ann Oberhauser, Farhana Sultana, Yvonne Underhill-Sem, and Mildred Warner.
