Women and Community Action (Revised 2nd edition)


Though often the unsung heroes of community action, women’s role in a community’s growth and development has become increasingly important in a globalising world that has changed considerably since the first edition of this classic text was published. As well as focusing on women, the book discusses gender relations more widely and highlights the differentiated position of both men and women in community work. It considers how the gender gap might be bridged in terms of building more socially cohesive communities that promote egalitarian social relations.
