Globalization and Third World Women: Exploitation, Coping and Resistance
Ligaya Lindio-McGovern, Isidor Wallimann
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2009 - Social Science - 214 pages
Adopting the notion of 'third world' as a political as well as a geographical category, this volume analyzes marginalized women's experiences of globalization. It unravels the intersections of race, culture, ethnicity, nationality and class which have shaped the position of these women in the global political economy, their cultural and their national history. In addition to a thematically structured and highly informative investigation, the authors offer an exploration of the policy implications which are commonly neglected in mainstream literature. The result is a must have volume for sociological academics, social policy experts and professionals working within non-governmental organizations.
