Trade liberalisation, a product of globalisation, intensifies export competition, and brings implications for women's employment. The papers in this important volume examine how trade policies have far-reaching consequences for women's livelihoods. Women constitute a significant proportion of the workforce in the export industries of Southeast Asia, giving a "competitive edge" to these industries. The economic well-being of women is also affected by the increased scope of trade, which now includes new issues such as agriculture, intellectual property rights, services and foreign investments. This book is a joint undertaking by UNIFEM and ENGENDER.
