Published by the United Nations Development Programme in 1975, 42 pages. A5 size booklet (S8295BKWSO)
 
From the second page: The movement for equal rights for women has been underway for a long time and has, by now, resulted in widespread abolition of legal barriers to women's participation in the affairs of modern society. Nevertheless, even where full legal rights exist, the unspoken traditional bias against women tends to persist. Moreover, it tends to become pronounced in the course of development. 

In its attempts to deal with this situation, which entails both waste of resources and a great deal of unnecessary human misery, UNDP has become convinced that the problem is so poorly understood that it is often impossible to even begin a discussion of what can be done to involve women more actively and more productively in the development process. The present booklet attempts to explain how and why women's participation in development presents a special problem and to make proposals for how to approach it.
