Global Women’s Work: Perspectives on Gender and Work in the Global Economy considers how women are shaping the global economic landscape through their labour, activism, and multiple discourses about work. Bringing together an interdisciplinary group of international scholars, the book offers a gendered examination of work in the global economy and analyses the effects of the 2008 downturn on women’s labour force participation and workplace activism.

The book addresses three key themes: exploitation versus opportunity; women’s agency within the context of changing economic options; and women’s negotiations and re-negotiations of unpaid social reproductive labour. This uniquely interdisciplinary and comparative analysis will be crucial reading for anyone with an interest in gender and the post-crisis world.
