Observe International Women's Day with an Oxford Handbook or a UN Database

March 8 is International Women's Day, a good time to feature some resources about women in international development.

Oxford Handbooks Online (licensed for UW users) are edited by prominent scholars. Chapters—also by prominent scholars—can give you a good start on a topic, with overviews and bibliographies.  For International Women's Day, you could search for specific topics (e.g., education or reproductive health) or browse:
