Overview

In this comprehensive overview, Mary E. Hawkesworth explores transnational feminist efforts to produce a more just global order. Arguing that globalization is a feminist issue, she considers how social, economic, and political inequalities between men and women of different races, classes, ethnicities, and nationalities have been produced and contested over the past two centuries of capitalist development. The author demonstrates how women have forged international networks and alliances to address specific gender issues beyond the borders of the nation-state. By providing critical new insights into the gendered nature of the global system and the gendered dynamics of international institutions and nation states, this work will be invaluable for all those engaged in the interdisciplinary fields of globalization studies and feminist studies.
