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.
Inspired by a series of “Business Unusual” workshops for journalists and writers around the region, the book offers the collective insight of a diverse range of workshop presenters from government, business and media, combined with the hundreds of interviews conducted in the process of producing thought-provoking articles published in collaboration with media houses. This book has been produced to share what has been learned over the course of the Business Unusual training into one of the key areas for the realisation of the targets on the SADC Protocol on Gender and Development: equal opportunities and outcomes in all economic endeavours.
