Women's Labor in the Global Economy: Speaking in Multiple Voices

Synopsis

Globalization is not a new phenomenon; women throughout the world have been dealing with circumstances and consequences of an international economy long before the advent of the transnational corporate conglomerate. However, in a mercenary example of the tired cliche "the more things change, the more they stay the same," women-particularly those of color-continue to be relegated to the lowest rung of the occupational ladder, where their indispensable contributions to global market capitalism are downplayed or invalidated completely through the perpetuation of stereotypes and the denial of access to better job opportunities and resources.
