About This Book

This book examines how the present globalised worksites are opening channels for women to break out from their traditional confinement at home. But with women prioritising paid work over domestic chores, the traditional division of work at home is disrupted, causing conflict between husbands and wives. The book focuses on the women's various responses to their husbands' ambivalent attitude toward their rising participation in productive work. It examines issues such as entrepreneurship, women subcontractors, work quotas and reproduction. With bibliography and index.
