Demystifying the phenomenon of globalization, this book offers an overview of its prime drivers, processes and forces. Four sectoral studies of women workers are provided: two on factory women in garment exports and electronics; the third on home-based workers in a range of manufacturing processes and industries; and the fourth on middle class women working in Information Technology Enabled Services (ITES).
An incisive guide to the impact of globalization on women’s work, the book will be invaluable for scholars, activists, the general public, whose very livelihood is at stake, and indeed for policy makers.
Indrani Mazumdar is fellow, Centre for Women’s Development Studies, Delhi and a long time activist in the women’s movement.
