"Engendering Development - Through Gender Equality in Rights, Resources, and Voice brings together existing and new research from several social science disciplines to examine the costs of persistent gender disparities to well-being and countries' development prospects.

It explores how formal and informal institutions shape gender roles and relations and how household decisions and behaviors reproduce those roles, the relationship between economic development and gender equality, and the role of public policy and civic action in promoting gender equality."--BOOK JACKET.
