Abstract:The greatest contribution of the study and the practice of "women and development" is to have provided a gender perspective to the development theory. This perspective emphasizes its role in the national and international development policy, and its influence in the development analysis.The three models changing from "Women in Development", "Women and Development" to "Gender and Development" not only demonstrate a progress of the theory, but also open up many ways of practice.
