The book is an updated and revised edition part of the 1985 version of the same title. The author divides the aims of the book in three parts: 1- presents a framework for gender analysis, based on the many levels of difference between men and women and the way each uses water. Part 2 gives an overview of integrated water resources, management policy and gender analysis. By asking questions such as "Who loses? Who benefits? And at what cost?" the author explains the importance of gender focus. Lastly, part 3 summarizes the operation of gender approaches in water resources and management, drinking and sanitation principles.
