In Gender and Work in Capitalist Economies, Pamela Odih advances a politics of gender and time, exploring the sociological aspects of work. This book provides a dynamic intervention into Marxist analysis of time and capitalist accumulation, and looks at how in contemporary regimes this translates as the universal appropriation of women's labour time.
Pamela Odih reasons that it is a disconcerting fact of global manufacturing, that accelerated turnover gains have become increasingly dependent on the exploitation of a spatially disaggregated, feminized global assembly-line.
The book explores:Industrial and post-industrial times as moments in a longer-term trend Manufacturing in the 24 hour economy Accelerated rates of disaggregated production Gender and Work in Capitalist Economies is key reading for students of gender studies, sociology, organizational analysis and economic history.
