About the Author

Mary E. Hawkesworth is professor of political science and women's and gender studies at Rutgers University and editor of Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society.


Globalization involves a politics of feminization: rendering females and males subservient to market imperatives and subject to devalorization of their bodies, labor, and skills. How have and might feminists respond to continuity and change in devaluing that which is `feminized'? Hawkesworth deftly guides us through this expansive terrain. Comprehensive yet cogent, critical but not daunting, this is a must-read for all who wonder about globalizations and feminisms: past, present, and future. -- V. Spike Peterson, University of Arizona
Hawkesworth offers a rich review of international feminist activism since the 19th century. . . . Recommended. * CHOICE *
This rich and engaging volume will change your view of globalization forever. A powerful study of the women's movement, making links across history and theory in a fresh and always accessible style. -- Gillian Youngs, author of International Relations in a Global Age
