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.
