The Globalized Woman: Reports from a future of inequality
Christa Wichterich

Globalization creates growth without jobs in the North, structural adjustment in the South, privatization in the East and the dismantling of states everywhere. It is a process which unifies through market integration and new information technologies, yet separates through growing social polarization. It is also a process which depends on the feminization of employment; rather than liberating women into the workplace, globalization has bred a new underclass of low paid or unpaid women workers. From New York to Phnom Penh, from Moscow to Dakar, we see the devastating effects of the unfettered power of transnational corporations on women’s lives. This book charts that devastation and calls for urgent action – by states across the world and by women themselves.
