  • At the Sixth Southern Conference on Women’s History in Athens, Georgia, in June 2003, the depth and breadth of the research presented was impressive. 1 As we assembled the very best of the expanded conference papers, representing the cutting edge of scholarship on southern women’s history, we were inspired by a story from the front lines rather than the archives, a contemporary drama of African American labor union women creating and confronting change in the Mississippi Delta.

  • Stock-taking occurred in different forms: through the presentation of the World Bank’s and of the Inter-American Development Bank’s studies on social funds, as well as through many individual interventions by social funds’ managers during the plenary sessions and in working groups. Ten original papers were also presented by relevant practitioners on specific topics related to social funds’ design, management, and implementation. These papers provide an overview of current design and implementation challenges and concerns facing social funds.
