Gender, Poverty and Rights
Gender, Poverty and Rights: A Trainers Manual
By Ranjani K. Murthy and Mercy Kappen
120 pages, Rs. 200
A first in a series of manuals it has been conceptualized to familiarize facilitators with current debates on whether attention to gender and poverty issues diverts resources and programs from addressing women’s rights. The manual holds the position that there is a need to address issues of gender and poverty from a rights perspective.
The manual begins with methodologies for facilitating sessions on gender and self. It then moves to concepts of gender, social relations and institutions, and how they have a bearing on poverty. The impact of globalization in the Indian context is explored next. Finally, it presents strategies that could be used by facilitators to update participants on current debates on gender, poverty and rights.
