Abstract

In this paper I engage with emerging debates around professionalisation and knowledge production in development, in order to explore how the diverse knowledges acquired by grassroots volunteer health promoters are situated, scaled, and understood. I consider how localised hierarchies of class and race limit the possibilities for grassroots women activists’ knowledges to be recognised in the increasingly professionalised and transnational sphere of international development. The research engages with feminist conceptions of everyday knowledges, and highlights the importance of foregrounding the voices of women from the global south.
