"A sobering and thought-provoking examination of something many of us have taken for granted: the unquestioned benefit and feminist appeal of the Girl Effect model." * Philanthropy News Digest *
"The book is especially interesting for researchers involved in ethnography, feminism, corporate policy making, charitable giving, and the role of capitalism in enhancing and hurting worker conditions." * CHOICE *
"Every now and then, a book comes along that has the potential to widen the compass and shift the terms of debate in a research field in a decisive manner. Kathryn Moeller's The Gender Effect is precisely such a book for the field of global development studies, and especially for critical research on the politics of gender, poverty, and development. . . . the book should be widely read and vigorously discussed as a source of crucial insights into how philanthrocapitalism works to disarm radical political projects, and what can and must be done to avoid this." * Community Development Journal *
