Trading Stories: Experiences with Gender and Trade
Marilyn Carr, Mariama Williams
Commonwealth Secretariat, 2010 - Law - 282 pages
Through twenty regional and country case studies, Trading Stories pulls together the key links between trade, gender and economic development. Ten case studies focus on the gender impacts of trade policies, detailing differential consequences on men and women; and ten focus on linking women with global markets-including FairTrade, organic, niche and mainstream markets-through a range of best practices involving government, NGOs, people's organizations and associations, private sector and international agencies.
The book draws on three recent Commonwealth Secretariat publications on gender and trade: Gender Mainstreaming in the Multilateral Trading System; Chains of Fortune: Linking Women Producers and Workers with Global Markets; and Gender and Trade Action Guide and is a useful addition to the growing body of evidence that will help governments to effectively mainstream gender in their trade policy.
