    schema:description "Drawing on the experiences of "Third World" women and "women of color," this collection challenges the ongoing reliance on dualities and explores the new issues, "voices," and dilemmas in development theory and practice. The book identifies various parallel processes affecting minority and Third World women, resulting in negative representations and silencing of their development expertise in favor of the supposed "expert" knowledge of Western development specialists. Using case studies of women in Africa, Latin America and Asia, as well as women of "color," the collection suggests the gap between local development knowledge and Western development expertise can be (and is sometimes) bridged in practice."@en ;
