Empowerment, citizenship and gender justice: contributions to locally-grounded theories of social change

Struggles for gender justice by women’s movements have sought to give legal recognition to gender equality at both national and international levels. However, such society-wide goals may have little resonance in the lives of individual men and women in contexts where a culture of individual rights is weak or missing and the stress is on the moral economy of kinship and community.

Naila Kabeer is Professor of Gender and Development at the Department of Gender Studies and Department of International Development.  Her research interests include gender, poverty, social exclusion, labour markets and livelihoods, social protection and citizenship and much of her research is focused on South and South East Asia.
