About the Author

Lena Dominelli is Chair of Applied Social Sciences, University of Durham, UK. Her extensive knowledge as a practitioner, researcher and educator is reflective in the extensive and impressive list of publications in the fields of social work, social policy and sociology.


"This book contributes a much needed and challenging analysis of women's continuing inequality in society; looking at their role in families, communities, the workplace and political structures. Dominelli recognises the complex and dynamic nature of communities, making visible the vital, but undervalued role that women often play in sustaining and mobilising community networks." Alison Gilchrist, Director, Practice Development, Community Development Foundation
