It is now almost a quarter of a century since Boserup's put women on the development agenda with her seminal work Woman’s Role in Economic Development. Yet the question remains open as to whether women are mainstreamed within development processes and, if they are, if they have benefited from this inclusion. This paper reviews the main debates and perspectives on these issues and re-asserts the relevance of many of the classic questions that have been raised. It concludes by arguing that feminist perspectives still have a significant contribution to make to the development debate
