The first part of this literature review introduces the main concepts and theoretical frameworks underpinning a gender-based approach to development. The second part discusses research that is concerned with the impact of religion upon the types of concerns that form the content of gender-development debates (e.g. access to employment, health care, education). The focus is on South Asia and Africa.
