Globalization and Changing Patterns of Economic Activity
MetadataShow full item record
The author argues that globalization has created new markets for female labor through the influences of transnational corporations, tourism, micro-finance and industry. Women's employment, however, varies from country to country more than men's does according to social expectations of women's roles. She uses micro-finance, tourism and industry work to flesh out the positive and negative impacts of these new types of employment for women.
