Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This and many other provocative questions are addressed in this ground breaking book. Filling a significant gap Gender and Global Restructuring provides the first comprehensive analysis of globalization and its relationship to gender. Feminist experts from a range of disciplines take the reader beyond narrow interpretations of globalization and show the complexities and contradictions of ongoing global transformations, referred to as global restructuring. The book presents a significant critique of the gender-blindness of both neo-liberal and critical accounts of globalization and foregrounds feminist accounts which stress women's agency, not just victimization, in relation to global restructuring. It reveals how states, markets, civil society, households and gender identities are simultaneously being restructured in different ways in different regional and national contexts. It also shows how women's resistances connect the global and the local, the public and the private. This pioneering collection will be vital reading for students and researchers in the fields of globalization, gender studies, international political economy, international relations and comparative
