9780804753241: Global Dimensions of Gender and Carework

Why are women such prominent workers in the global marketplace? Why do so many perform jobs that involve carework? What political forces have made these women key participants in globalization? What are the consequences for the women themselves, for their families, and for societies and international relations in general? This book offers a provocative examination of globalization, examining the lives of the women at the center of these new global dynamics. Arguing that society is facing multiple crises of care, the authors develop a new framework for understanding the interplay of globalization, gender, and carework. In four original essays, they examine gender, race, and class inequality; migration, citizenship, and the politics of social control; the evolving meanings of motherhood; and new social definitions of carework and the personal transformation of careworkers. Excerpts from the classic works in the field as well as recent cutting-edge research studies support the examination of each of these growing global crises.

From the Back Cover:

"The book is highly readable and a valuable resource for understanding the global hierarchies of inequality."—CHOICE
“Zimmerman, Litt, and Bose have brought together some of the seminal work done on a little-attended aspect of globalization, the changing roles of women and the changing patterns of carework. More than that, they have organized these materials and provided illuminating integrative essays of their own in a way that brings theoretical coherence to the diverse phenomena discussed. This book makes a large contribution to the field of women’s studies, and it provides an excellent teaching resource.” —Frances Fox Piven,Graduate School and University Center, CUNY
