Deadline: 20 October 2016
Gender & Development is inviting papers and will examine the theme of Water Sanitation and Hygiene, through the lens of gender equality and women’s rights.
G&D is a unique journal, producing content on three themes each year – in March, July and November – to inform and influence development policymakers, practitioners and researchers about placing women’s rights and gender equality at the centre of their work. It is published for Oxfam by Routledge/Taylor and Francis. G&D provides a forum for the sharing of innovation, good practices and lessons learned from researchers, policymakers, development practitioners and feminist activists, particularly offering space to those from the global South.

- Women’s rights and gender equality activism around prevention and eradication of water-borne diseases and related concerns, in different contexts.
- Women’s leadership and technical expertise, in water and sanitation, from the grassroots, via technical and decision-making roles in civil society and government, to the leadership of international development organisations
