The UK government intends to reorientate its entire aid programme to put the lives of women in developing countries at its heart, the deputy prime minister, Nick Clegg, will tell a United Nations summit.
Women\’s lives will get better when they are more valued within their own societies. It is economic growth which increases the societal appreciation of the value of women.
Thus, a \”gender based\” method of aid would focus upon economic growth. For that is what will raise the valuation of women in those currently poor societies.
