9781847012036: Gender of Globalization: Women Navigating Cultural and Economic Marginalities (School of American Research Advanced Seminar)

As 'globalization' moves rapidly from buzzword to cliche, evaluating the claims of neoliberal capitalism to empower and enrich remains urgently important. The authors in this volume employ feminist, ethnographic methods to examine what free trade and export processing zones, economic liberalization, and currency reform mean to women in Argentina, Sri Lanka, Mexico, Ghana, the United States, India, Jamaica, and many other places. Heralded as agents of prosperity and liberation neoliberal economic policies have all too often refigured and redoubled the burdens of gender, race, caste, class, and regional subordination that women bear.

Review:

In addition to specialists, this book will be a useful resource for upper division undergraduates and beginning graduate students studying work, economic anthropology, gender, globalization, and class issues. One of the book's greatest strengths is that, as a collection, it addresses side by side the similarities between marginalized women in very different areas of the globe while never losing track of the particular differences that geography, class, caste, ethnicity, race, and even age can have on the ways in which women experience the problems and possibilities of globalization. --Alicia DeNicola, Anthropology of Work Review, Vol. XXIX, No. 3
