Gender and social protection in the developing world: beyond mothers and safety nets

Book/book chapter

Written by Rebecca Holmes, Nicola Jones

Drawing on empirical evidence from poor households and communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America, this book provides rich insight into the effects of a range of social protection instruments. It concludes that with relatively simple changes to design and with investment in implementation capacity, social protection can contribute to transforming gender relations at the individual, intrahousehold and community levels.
