Using Black and post-colonial feminism, Sara de Jong explores the reflections of women in the global North whose "doing good" work is aimed at improving conditions for other women. Drawing on interviews with 21 women NGO workers in seven different European countries about their experiences and perspectives on working on gendered issues affecting women in the global South, the book looks at the ways in which the work they do is embedded in power structures and inequalities. De Jong also critiques the “neoimperial and postcolonial project” of international development. But the book’s dominant message is one of hope. And it’s no longer enough simply to “do good” if one is not “doing it right”.
