New GADN discussion paper on intersectionality released
On 13 December 2017, the Gender & Development Network and Oxfam came together with experts working on women’s rights, development economics, climate justice and globalisation, to discuss the current impacts of trade on women, and propose ways in which trade policy and agreements must change in order to ensure that they support, instead of threaten, gender equality and women’s rights.

Vacancy: Network Coordinator
Intersectionality is increasingly referred to among feminists but frequently undefined, leaving the term open to a variety of interpretations: what it means in practice and how to put it to use is still unclear to many. Here, the Gender & Development Network attempts a summary of the discussion in order to assist our members and colleagues to better define the concept and how to use it.

Bringing a women’s rights perspective to the table: Notes from a roundtable with the UK Secretary of State for International Development, women’s rights organisations and NGOs
The Gender & Development Network (GADN) is pleased to release a series of papers as part of its Feminist Alternatives Project.
This project has evolved over a number of years and has encompassed an international online discussion and many internal debates and papers amongst GADN members, their southern partners and other allies. It became clear that a single paper, peppered with caveats, was not the way forward so we decided to produce a collection of papers allowing the project to encompass diverse perspectives.
GADN recently convened a group of women's rights organisations and NGOs working on macroeconomics and gender equality to meet with the Secretary of State for International Development to present proposals on the work of the High Level Panel on Women's Economic Empowerment.
