Women, globalization and fragmentation in the developing world

edited by Haleh Afshar and Stephanie Barrientos

The process of globalization has had a dramatic impact on the lives of women in developing countries in the past decade. They have been increasingly drawn into insecure, flexible employment working for the world market. The feminization of the labour market has increased the burdens on women; and the inability of men to access full-time, well-remunerated employ-ment has exacerbated the process of male out-migration and has left many families headed by women. At the same time, the reduction in state services and welfare has increased the burdens placed on women. Nevertheless the consequences of globalization have been different for different women in different places. In some circumstances it has created opportunities for greater empower-ment, whilst in others it has stimulated a reaction and increased the subordination of women. This book explores the experiences of women in diverse local contexts within different cultures and faiths, drawing on case-studies from Asia, Africa and Latin America. It draws out the contradictory and fragmented impact of globalization at the local level on the lives of women in the developing world.
