The "I" Stories
The "I" Stories is an annual project of Gender Links (GL), in collaboration with partnering organisations, to share first hand accounts of women and men affected by gender based violence. The process combines working with women in a workshop setting to assistthem to tell their stories, and an open call for contributions. The "I" stories cover a broad range of issues, surviving gender violence, HIV/AIDS, culture, etc. Along with editing annual regional editions and country-specific books, CMFD has also worked with the women to record their stories in audio format.
As a region, the Southern African Development Community (SADC) is increasingly recognising that development - economic, social, is increasingly recognising that development - economic, social, and political - requires a conscious awareness of how different strategies and choices affect the lives of all citizens, both women and men. Yet the gender dimensions of macroeconomic policy, budgets, trade, work and business are among the least understood by policy makers, decision-makers and the media. This book sets out to explore some of these issues. By looking at topics such as the hidden economies of care, the world of work and enterprise, development, globalisation and trade, budgeting and governance, this book offers unique perspectives on gender, the economy and business.
