This book develops an analytical framework and a set of tools which can assist planners, as well as trainers, to ensure that gender is systematically integrated into different aspects of their work. It offers an inventory of the kinds of assumptions which lead to gender blind policy and assesses integrationist and transformatory strategies by feminist advocates to influence the mainstream policy agenda. An analytical framework for examining gender inequalities generated by key development institutions occupies a central place in the book. A selection of case studies from the Indian context illustrate the different aspects of the framework and its applications.
