I. Special Feature: Two New BRIDGE Annotated Bibliographies – ‘Twenty Key Resources in Spanish on Gender and Development’, and ‘Twenty Key Gender Websites in Spanish’ (both available in English and Spanish versions)
===============================

These two bibliographies present a selection of materials and websites on gender and development from individuals and organisations based in Spanish-speaking countries. Although not exhaustive selections, they give a flavour of the variety and richness of feminist debates and gender sensitive initiatives taking place in Latin America but also in Spain.

Both aim to give visibility to a wide range of perspectives and to communicate the innovative work of diverse feminist actors, based in different types of organisations and institutions, including local non-governmental organisations, feminist networks, feminist communications initiatives and research programmes.
