Skip to 0 minutes and 6 secondsHave you ever wondered what gender has to do with international development? Have you ever asked about the major global challenges for gender equity? Hello. I'm Maree Pardy. And I'm a lecturer in international and community development for Deakin University. I teach post-graduate students and I also research gender issues. And I'm now very excited to introduce you to this FutureLearn course. In this two-week course, we'll explore a range of theories that will help us to understand what gender is and how it works in the world. We'll analyse some of the moral and political challenges of gender inequity, reflect on the history of gender and development, and discover why gender is critical to understanding and engaging with development.
