Apologies for cross-posting.

List members may be interested in the latest Special Issue of the
Community Development Journal entitled, 'The Politics of Everyday Life:
Feminisms and Contemporary Community Development'.

This Special Issue was inspired by the call from Elizabeth Wilson to
'inject some feminism into the community work scene'.  Wilson argued
that community development workers, so focused on political struggles in
the workplace or in state structures, ignored the fight for gender
equality and social justice in the home and in the community. Although
Wilson was writing more than thirty years ago, the editors wanted to
revisit her critiques about the political orientation of community
development in order to assess the state of contemporary feminist
community development around the globe.
