The gender question in globalization changing perspectives and practices
It is frequently assumed that globalization has the same features and impact everywhere on this globe, such as the feminization of poverty, labour and even peace. These ideas circulate in official documents and scientific writings, where they settle practically as truths and become global orthodoxies. This book is about deconstructing those orthodoxies. Moreover, it goes beyond dichotomous thinking of the global and the local, the modern and the traditional and women and men as opposite entities, and focuses on the global/local entanglement.Now available in paperback, this volume is a multi-layered gender analysis applied to the global/local nexus where globalization is not treated as a linear and top-down process with a known outcome and pre-conceived definition of gender. Instead, the approach scrutinizes the dynamics of each context on its own merits, including the agency of women and men. This results in unexpected outcomes and highlights a variety of differences in sometimes seemingly similar global processes.Through this gender lens, different and new meanings of gender appear, rooted in multiple modernities.
