This book is in response to Joan Scott's call to examine politics and gender. It grew out of a 1996 conference held at the University of London, and is based on 12 case studies of 'gender relations' in Latin America. This conference was organised by the co-editors Elizabeth Dore, Professor of Latin American History at the University of Portsmouth, England, and Maxine Molyneux, Professor of Sociology at the Institute of Latin American Studies, University of London, England. Molyneux is also the Senior External Adviser of the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development project on Gender Justice, Development and Rights.
