Women & Development

Just a quick note for a muggy Wednesday evening.

Lately I have been increasingly interested in Economic Sociology and the empowerment of women.

My recent influences have been:

1. Three Cups of Tea/Greg Mortenson/Central Asia Institute
2. The work of Kiva
3. Development as Freedom by Amartya Sen
4. The work of my good friend Theresa VanderMeer, who unfortunately does not have a website, but who is incredible and brilliant, and has worked extensively with women in India. I will encourage her to get online and will repost a link here!
