Join the Feminist Development sub-section!

Feminist Development is one of three subsections of Sociology of Development. Membership is open to all section members.

Why should section members join us? Feminist Development brings together scholars and professionals who recognize that many development approaches continue to sideline women, girls, and other marginalized groups, articulate and affirm feminist approaches to development, seek more holistic understanding of the power dynamics informing development, and support collaboration across difference. The Subsection provides a platform for interacting in person and virtually to exchange information and resources on feminist development.
