Women in Development collects research on societal structures in Africa, the Caribbean, and Latin America. These materials reflect the impact of women in rural and urban settings. They discuss issues of education, economic growth and legal rights among other topics. Collected here is the research of scholars such as Elsa Chaney, Susan Poats, Helen Safa, Anita Spring, Marianne Schmink, and others who have pioneered research into women’s issues in developing countries. These resources serve not only as research archive, but also as a means for building infrastructure to better support women in developing societies.
