This report presents findings of a field study led by HelpAge International which assessed whether gender mainstreaming in rural transport programmes in Tanzania has had a transformative effect on women facing multiple forms of discrimination. The research sought views of communities, local authorities, national policy makers and development partners. An assessment of transformative change among women living in rural communities suggests a largely negative conclusion.
