Abstract

Covering a wide range of topics, and dealing with real-life issues, these international contributors, who are both male and female and who cross a variety of boundaries - social, cultural and political - examine various dimensions of women's lived experiences so that they might address the challenges that arise from women's contemporary struggles in relation to globalization, human rights and their place in a political economy. Divided into four sections, each section includes an introductory essay, and then each chapter recaps some of the history of the given issue before going on to examine its current status.
