|Description:||In this book I examine one local setting in which women have politically mobilized to ‘‘encounter development’’ in Latin America: that of Quito, Ecuador. As I show, the political identities and strategies of women’s community-based and nongovernmental organizations in Quito are neither entirely radical nor traditional, nor necessarily original. Yet they reveal much about the gendered making of modernity, national identity and politics in Ecuador, a country whose stateled modernization project has been paradoxical and inherently unequal from the start.|
