dc.descriptionGender mainstreaming, or at least the language of gender mainstreaming, has become a mainstay for donor agencies and non-government organisations engaged in development work. Increasingly, however, there are calls for the mainstreaming of other so-called &lsquo;cross-cutting aspects of development&rsquo;, such as disability. This article tries to provide an answer to the resultant question of how to deal with these simultaneously existing &lsquo;cross-cutting aspects&rsquo; and their attendant demands for mainstreaming. The article focuses on a holistic approach facilitated by the feminist concept of &lsquo;intersectionality&rsquo;, which is illustrated via a case study of Sightsavers&rsquo; Lady Health Workers Programme in Pakistan. Ultimately, I argue that intersectional mainstreaming must counter a weakness in the implementation of traditional mainstreaming, by working against the depoliticisation of key liberatory concepts and goals. This article is hosted by our co-publisher Taylor & Francis.
