Book Summary

Introduction Technology choices are determined by a myriad of often conflicting factors and priorities. Political interests, embedded bias and cost factors all affect which technologies are prioritised, or even recognised, above others. The literature concerning gender and technology has made considerable inroads to our understanding of how gendered assumptions and inequalities play their role in these technology choices. While our understanding has increased, however, the implementation of gender 'appropriate technologies' has still been a challenge for governments, NGOs (non-government organisations) and international actors in developing countries (Dutta 2003, 16-18; Foster 1999, 20). This paper will explore the difficulties faced by one development actor from Bangladesh, called Grameen Shakti. What makes this particular case study unique is that Grameen Shakti is a 'social enterprise'.
