Globalisation is about making things global. It is the process of creating languages, services, and products that apply not just to an individual neighbourhood or city or country, but to the whole world. Globalisation has brought many benefits to the lives of people including access to products and services from around the world. But it has also led to deepening global poverty, increased stress and workloads in both the paid and unpaid labour force, and environmental destruction. Women have been particularly affected both by the benefits and risks of globalisation. This book gives a comprehensive coverage to all important issues arising out of globalisation and the manner in which it affects the day-to-day lives of women. It shows how economic liberalisation has resulted in the feminisation of labour activity and poverty and has disturbed the existing patterns of social relationships. It also discusses issues of gender inequality, women's political participation, women's rights and gender mainstreaming in the context of globalisation. This book will be very useful for development planners, researchers and all others who are interested in women studies.
