This paper draws together reflections, approaches and practical lessons from development programs that are, in various ways, seeking both to be gender aware and to understand and engage with power and politics. It aims to provide food for thought for donor organisations and development programs. 
 
It draws on 14 case studies, and on the in-depth study of Program Peduli's work with the transgender waria community of Banjarmasin, Indonesia.
