Using modern-day examples, we will identify gender roles and power issues related to Development careers touching on power in work, love, and friendship. We will examine how women effectively use power in the world of development to not only help themselves, but also other women progress in their careers, and how this affects their personal life and friendships. The topics that we will cover are the traditional/stereotypical gender roles of women in the workplace and a post modernistic view of women in power.
