Gender and power: six links and one big opportunity
Gender is an important consideration in development. It is a way of looking at how social norms and power structures impact on the lives and opportunities available to different groups of men and women. Globally, more women than men live in poverty. Women are also less likely than men to receive basic education and to be appointed to a political position nationally and internationally. Understanding that men and women, boys and girls experience poverty differently and face different barriers in accessing services, economic resources and political opportunities helps to target interventions. According to the World Development Report WDR , gender is defined as socially constructed norms and ideologies which determine the behaviour and actions of men and women.
Gender is the range of characteristics pertaining to, and differentiating between, femininity and masculinity.

We used a small-scale qualitative study to examine theoretically and empirically the interrelationships between sex, gender and symbolic consumption. We identified the importance of social contexts private versus public situations for the enactment and interpretation of gendered consumption. Feminist, postmodernist and poststructuralist debates see Butler , pp.
Metrics details. Transgender and gender non-conforming TGNC people face high rates of poverty, joblessness, and homelessness, rendering this population vulnerable to experiencing food insecurity. Yet, there is almost no empirical evidence concerning food insecurity and the use of local and federal food assistance resources in the TGNC community. Participants were recruited via targeted Facebook advertisements. High levels of minority stress and community resilience were reported. No significant associations were found between GMSR and food security. Multi-level public health solutions that address discriminatory legislative policies and create linkages between TGNC people and local and federal food assistance are required to address issues of food insecurity in the TGNC population.
