In recent decades, women living in border cities have taken on new roles and have become one of the most vulnerable population groups; experiencing the effects of the economic crisis of the early 21st century and the consequent increase in social inequality and violence. This situation is particularly evident for the northern borderlands of Mexico and Morocco. The geopolitical position of these regions is defined by their strong existing asymmetry with their neighbouring countries: the United States, in the case of Mexico, and the Mediterranean European countries, in the case of Morocco. This book contributes to the understanding of current changes in the workplace, in family, in sexuality and sexual violence within the setting of the borderlands, through various studies addressing the manner in which these transformations are interpreted and experienced by women in everyday life and in their individual and collective agency.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book presents an original study of the heterogeneous realities evidenced in both the northern borderlands of Mexico and of Morocco. Significantly, the interdisciplinary approach enriches and breaks paradigms about globalization and gender showing, for example, that the transformations within the manufacturing realm require a reassessment of the meaning of traditional womanhood and of power relations. This research contributes to the knowledge of women's reality in differing spheres of life." - Beatriz Castilla Ramos, Universidad Autonoma de Yucatan, Mexico.

"This multi-layered nexus of globalization and survival, migration and work, gender, identity and family, offers a much-needed contribution to the scholarship. Moreover, the collection's emphasis on violence and vulnerability, as well as transnational feminist resistance in the form of grassroots collective action makes this book a signal achievement. This comparative approach is of great significance for international scholars and activists, as well as anyone interested in women's rights and human rights, particularly in transnational settings." - Cynthia Bejarano, New Mexico State University, USA
