Abstract: "Collective action plays a vital role in many peoples lives, through such areas as income generation, risk reduction, public service provision, and the management of natural resources. However, mens and womens interests often differ because they have different rights, resources, and responsibilities. Due to these differences as well as socially constructed norms of what it means to be male and female, mens and womens voices are often not equally represented or valued in collective action institutions. Including a gender perspective in these institutions can lead to more effective and equitable outcomes. "This brief summarizes findings from an international workshop on Gender and Collective Action organized in 2005 by CAPRi in Chiang Mai, Thailand."
