We have integrated different perspectives and approaches into the existing structure of the book, not as a way of imposing constraints, but as an attempt to show one way that these issues could converge on similar concepts and interlink with one another. This is but one of many ways that we can conceptualize the perennial dilemmas of work versus family; a reality that has had impacts on women, regardless of whether they are positioned in industrialized, newly industrializing or newly liberalized economies.
