Counting Ourselves In explores the richness, variety and depth of women’s community economic development (CED). It is designed to be a guide for women who want to start a CED project. We also hope it will encourage more analysis and activity.
Women’s CED is about women working together to improve the quality of their lives and their communities. The process has been described in many other ways, such as community development or organizing for community well-being. Often projects relating to healthy communities or sustainable development have similar goals to women’s CED.
