“The use of water – including the question of who can have access, when, and how much they can have – is shaped as much by the way a society is organised, as by issues of supply. Gender inequality means that women – along with other marginalised groups – are often negatively affected by systems of water allocation, and usually lack the power to take a role in decision-making about which use of water takes priority. This collection of cutting edge articles show, in the vast majority of societies women bare the main responsibility for ensuring adequate water for domestic uses but rarely have a voice in deciding where new water resources should be located and examine the impact that ensuring this domestic supply has on women.”
