Sobre Caroline Sweetman:
Since 1993, Caroline Sweetman has been Editor of the international journal, 'Gender and Development', published by Oxfam GB and Taylor and Francis (Routledge). The journal's aim is to stimulate debate among development policymakers and practitioners, and share lessons, to ensure that development practice supports gender equality and the empowerment of women. Caroline's education focused on literature and periodical journalism before she made the shift to study gender and development. She obtained her MA in Gender Analysis in Development Studies from the University of East Anglia and her PhD from the Centre for Development Studies, University of Leeds. Her doctoral thesis focused on Livelihoods, Poverty and the Empowerment of Women in Ethiopia, her husband's home country. Her fieldwork focused on the impact of an Oxfam-supported project targetting women for micro-credit, in a community of recent rural to urban migrants in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Caroline has worked as a gender policy advisor for Oxfam and other organisations in east and southern Africa including Ethiopia, Sudan, and Zimbabwe. Over the past 15 months she has been seconded as Policy Advisor to Oxfam's Policy Research Team to support gender mainstreaming in Oxfam's global advocacy and campaigning activities. Caroline lived and worked in Lesotho in the early 1990s, for local NGOs and UN agencies, on media-based development projects. This experience - and her career in Oxfam - has given her the opportunity to listen and learn about women's real lives, and critique the lack of 'fit' between these realities and the development interventions offered by both neo-liberal and 'alternative' development.
