    This paper was presented at the Reclaiming Feminism, Gender and NeoLiberalism conference held at the Institute of Development Studies, Brighton, UK, 9–10 July 2007. A previous version of this paper was presented at the Pathways of Women's Empowerment Research Programme Consortium Inception Workshop, Luxor, Egypt in September 2006.
