The British Council, Social development and gender

Working with women of the world

"Reducing poverty and powerlessness of many millions of women around the world is not just 'a women's issue' but central to sustainable economic and social development. It is as important for men as for women." Rt Hon, The Baroness Chalker of Wallasey, Minister for Overseas Development

The British Council aims to promote the status of women and their participation in the political, social, economic, cultural and legal aspects of the development process, particularly through providing access to information, education and training.
