How do we recognize the centrality of gender as an organizing principle in the ways water is envisaged, used and managed every day in different locations and contexts? Fluid Bonds puts on a gender lens while looking at water, makes gender visible in the various ways water is dealt with, questions how these ways affect gender and how gender affects views on water.
The book is divided into: I ‘Global Discourses on Gender and Water’, II ‘Gendered Waters in Times and Places’, III ‘Gendered Cultures and Economics of Water’ and IV ‘Representations and Agency of Women in Water’.
