This brief considers progress made in understanding gender and development between the 1982 and the 2008 World Development Report. The authors acknowledge achievements in valuing women's dynamic roles in agricultural productivity and development in general, but also point to areas in which the most recent report fall short, including an acknowledgement of the lack of policy recommendations for deeper social and structural inequalities.

You can download the brief from the Overseas Development Institute's website.
