About this title

Synopsis:

The challenges and consequences of globalization have been a significant point of discussion with different stakeholders in society. Along with it, much debate has been generated in terms of women's representation in the global economy. Nevertheless, there is a wider need to understand the scope where women fit in the larger scheme of today's global environment. This book - based on research conducted in India - contributes to the development of a feminist perspective on women and the related issues linked to their gender. The contributors provide insights from varied areas that impact women in their personal, social, and economic lives. The book is a reflection of the voices of women who, in spite of being a part of a growing world economy, are still languishing behind men. The issues are many: sexual orientation, striving for gender equality, economic empowerment, sound education, sexual harassment, exploration towards self-identity, and strong physical and mental health. The book is a springboard to a much larger platform for future debates in affirmative action for the holistic development of women.
