Many people blame kastom or traditional ways of doing things as the root of gender inequalities. They argue that in order to create gender equality, there is a need to transform traditional cultures to modern societies, a transition that reflects the trajectories of modernization. This presentation highlights the introduction of fish aggregating device (FAD) as an example of how international organizations use economic development to change relationships between men and women in traditional societies.
