Caren Grown responds to the tensions and different points of view in the international debate on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) brought out in Development 48.1 on the MDGs. She takes issue with the skeptical view that the MDGs are doomed to failure, and she argues they can be transformational if governments' and civil society ensure that the seven priorities for gender equality outlined in the Task Force Three report are followed.Development (2005) 48, 82–86. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1100170
