The Master’s Tools Revisited: Can Law Contribute to Ending Violence Against Women?

Published on 1 November 2006

Current development practice prioritises, in fact virtually equates itself with, poverty reduction. However, I have come to the study and practice of development from a background as a feminist activist and practitioner, and as such I am motivated by my interest in reducing inequalities, in particular those that affect women.

Once development is framed in terms of inequality, it is difficult to avoid recognising that the changes needed to address the problem include shifting power relations.
